Status of Andalusia's greenhouse crops in week 10

The Agricultural and Fisheries Information Service of the Junta de AndalucĂ­a has issued a report on the state of greenhouse crops in the region and different provinces.

In Almeria, producers have decided to keep long-cycle peppers as an exclusive crop until the end of the season. All varieties of long-cycle tomatoes are still being harvested. Spring tomato plantations are in different stages of development and producers have already started harvesting the most advanced crops. Long-cycle eggplant is still being harvested and some plantations are coming to the end of their productive cycle. The cucumber harvest continues and the crops have a good vegetative development. The fruiting of the watermelons is going well.

Producers in La Costa, Granada, are harvesting yellow and red cherry tomatoes that were planted at a density of 15,000 plants per hectare in September. Producers expect botrytis issues due to the humidity in the greenhouses. According to producers, there is a need for an increase in the number of analyses of products imported from outside the EU. The harvest of long cucumbers and green zucchini continues.

In Cadiz, in La Algaida, SanlĂșcar de Barrameda, the production of white zucchini and Galia melon continues, with the former showing different phenological states and the Galia in the growth phase. The higher melons are in the flowering stage and are being staked. The development of other melon crops is more delayed.

The strawberry harvest campaign in Huelva continues, with good results for the 15121 and 15105 varieties. The Marisma strawberry season is considered acceptable. Producers have reported the appearance of botrytis and mildew due to humidity. The sector calls for increased border controls after authorities detected contaminated strawberries from Morocco.
