"Almeria's agricultural cluster moves more than 5,000 million euro"

Seeds are a key piece of Almeria's horticultural production machine. The province's annual turnover in horticultural seeds stands at around 200 million euro. The most important seeds, from an economic point of view, are pepper, tomato, cucumber, rootstock (tomato and watermelon, mainly), watermelon, lettuce, zucchini, and melon seeds.

Having high-quality horticultural seeds allows European markets to produce more competitive vegetables.

"Almeria's horticultural seed R&D is a reference in the Mediterranean area and in temperate climates around the world."

"The auxiliary industry for agriculture has a turnover of around 1,500 million euro, thanks to Almeria's clear export vocation of its innovation," stated Aranzazu Martin.

It is Spain's leading fruit and vegetable exporting province, having exported more than 2.7 million tons of fruits and vegetables for more than 2,680 million euro this season. The province has 32,200 hectares of greenhouse and more than 11,000 hectares of outdoor crops."
