Avocado Cultivation

"Green gold".

The cultivation of this fruit has grown steadily in Spain in recent years and now exceeds 14,000 hectares in area and is close to 100 million kilos of production.

In some areas, the avocado is called "green gold" because of the substantial profits it brings in.

Its Cultivation

Andalusia is the leader in volume and extension, with Malaga and Granada as spearheads, although it is also growing in the Canary Islands and the Valencian Community.

The subtropical climate of Granada and Malaga makes these areas ideal for its development, a factor that can be replicated in crops grown under plastic, with proper monitoring of water and energy consumption so that it does not become a factor that conditions the final profitability.

Average avocado price increases 9%.

The volume of avocado production in Andalusia, which accounts for more than 90% of the total in Spain, has exceeded 87,000 tons in the 2019/2020 campaign, which has culminated with a good price level in all varieties, according to the Observatory of Prices and Markets of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development of the Andalusian Government.

The average price for the season was 2.34 euros per kilo, an increase of 9% over the previous year. 


The high European demand has made the Spanish avocado, especially the Andalusian one, the reference".

The key

The management of the avocado crop is not easy, as its yield per square meter is relatively low. Each hectare of avocado produces around 10,000 kilos of product, which means an average of one kilo per square meter. In addition, the tree that bears this fruit depends on optimal irrigation management, with the drip system being the most appropriate for this purpose, as it also facilitates fertilization work through the same mechanism.
