07 maig Farmers in the Algars River basin concerned for the lack of precipitation
Last April 10-12, 2019, Dídac Jordà-Capdevila went to the Algars River basin for gathering data about water and agricultural management. He interviewed 15 people, most of them farmers but also agricultural technicians, and ask questions related to the different activities associated to the land management: sowing, tillage, fertilization, pesticides application, irrigation and harvesting; for vineyards, olive, almond and forage crops. Results are very varied. Some farmers use organic manure; others chemical fertilizers. Some farmers use a lot of different type of pesticides; others produce organic food..
