Agriculture develops in Jumilla a project on the quality of olive oil of different olive varieties (25/05/2019)

The Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries develops in the Center for Agrarian Demonstration 'La Maestra', in Jumilla, a technology transfer project with the aim of studying the agronomic behavior of different olive varieties, as well as the main parameters of quality and the organoleptic characteristics of the oil obtained.

The objective is to offer farmers results that help them in making decisions to optimize the profitability of their farms, taking into account the available resources and the conditions of the area.

The area of ​​the Altiplano of the Region of Murcia has a long tradition in the cultivation of olive trees and the production of olive oil.

The most widespread olive varieties for obtaining oil in Murcia are the Murciana Cornicabra or Callosina and the Cuquillo, also known as Lechin de Granada or Manzanilla del Terreno, rustic varieties and with an acceptable drought resistance.

The initiative consists of the implantation of different olive varieties, both traditional in the Altiplano area and cultivated in other olive-growing areas, to compare their agronomic behavior, as well as to evaluate the quality and organoleptic characteristics of the oil obtained.

During the present project, production parameters and fat yield of all olive varieties will be obtained and the oil produced will be analyzed.

The Ministry will disclose the partial results of each production year through reports, technical conferences and through its website.

It will also make publications with the results.

This initiative has been co-financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (Feader), the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries.
