Farming in Spain.
Temperatures range from extremely hot to below freezing in the winter and rainfall can often be an issue, or, at least the lack of it. About 40% of Spain’s land is suitable for agriculture and cultivation and only 10% of the land could be described as good or excellent.
The terrain can also be quite rugged and tough on agricultural machinery as the soil is considered to be quite poor, with many rocks and a lot of terracing.
Spain’s traditional and more well-known agricultural products are Oranges and mandarins, Grapes, vegetables, cereals, olive oil and wine. More recently rice has been grown in the Deltas where water is more available.
In the farming community today, and with the Spanish becoming more affluent, there is an ever-increasing change to farming livestock, poultry and dairy products.
