The greenhouses in Almeria ended June with some activity. In Nijar, where there are already few tomato plantations, the price was defended, especially of the Cherry tomatoes, while some of the Daniela, Ramo, Pera, and Asurcado varieties were still being harvested, according to the latest province crop report conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Sustainable Development, corresponding to the period between June 21 and 27.
The rate of pepper planting is increasing in this part of the province. In fact, there already is an increase of early peppers in the seedbeds.
There are no longer many long-cycle courgette plantations and few short-cycle plantations remain in the fields. The watermelon and melon plantations are in "End of harvest/End of crop".
In turn, the Poniente greenhouses continue planting new California pepper in the earliest areas (Adra, Dalias, and Berja), although most of the greenhouses are still carrying out cleaning or solarizing tasks.
Tomato greenhouses are also conducting cleaning activities to disinfect and prepare the soil for the next plantations, although there are still some greenhouses with pear tomatoes finishing the harvest.
Few plantations of aubergines remain in production, with the roofs bleached by the heat and the bands open, and some plots with the long black varieties are already being planted.
The cucumber crops have already come to an end, and producers are cleaning crop debris and solarizing to disinfect the soil; new plantations are also beginning to be seen.
Some spring courgette plantations are still being harvested, yielding 10 kg/m². The rest are preparing the soil for the next crop.
Regarding Almeria's outdoor crops, the lettuce campaign in the Bajo Almanzora region has ended, while the Los Velez region's plantations continue to be harvested.
The broccoli campaign in the Pulpi area ended at the beginning of June with productions of 55,000-65,000 kg/ha. The cultivation continues in Los Velez, and the products are harvested every other day.
In the Bajo Almanzora region, Boston-type striped seedless watermelons are being produced as well as Fenway (black seedless), a medium-early cycle watermelon. Marketing has improved in recent weeks, the document points out.
