This campaign of Granada green asparagus employs 1,000 workers

April 18, 2011

Granada green asparagus used this season to over a thousand of workers only in the farms of Huétor-Tájar, ranging from his collection in the field and its manufacturing in the cooperative.

Production has increased in this season, due to the good time recorded so far this year, explained the President of Cesurca, which also adds that it will have to see if in the end the farmer and the cooperativist get a good price for your product.

Currently, half kilogram of asparagus is sold in the market at a price between the 2.25 and the 3.25 euros, while to the cooperativist doing by just 1.5 euros. 65% Of the production of the Granadian green asparagus is marketed in Europe and United States, but there are markets as Saudi Arabia that are starting to pick up with the strong introduction of this vegetable.

Area of Huétor vega, along with other localities like Salar, Loja, Villanueva Mesía, Moraleda, Montefrío, Algarinejo and Íllora, represents the largest producer of green asparagus land in Andalusia, given that there are grown approximately 10 million kg., of the 18 million that produces this community.

Cesurca is the only cooperative that markets the autochthonous variety tinge or triguero asparagus on a label of protected geographical indication, although its export is more complicated by her "small arms".

Despite the crisis and the high rate of unemployment in this area, the Granada huerta continues using the immigrant workforce, in the economic boom years the local population did not want to work in the field and chose for the construction.
