Farmland and agri-business in Southern Portugal
The Alentejo region has an agricultural tradition dating back thousands of years and is still home to a large number of farms. Crops such as wheat and barley, as well as cork oaks, olive trees and vineyards have shaped the landscape of Portugal’s former “granary” for generations.
With the inauguration of the Alqueva dam in 2004, this picture is changing and the water masses of Europe’s largest artificial lake are opening up new horizons. The continuous expansion of the irrigated areas (currently: 120,000 hectares) now also makes intensive cultivation of traditional crops, such as olive trees, possible.
Thanks to the Alqueva, farmers are also increasingly investing in plant species that were rather rarely found in the Alentejo, but whose fruits allow high yields. Notable examples are almonds, pistachios and walnuts.
