San Pedro del Pinatar hosts a meeting of the Ecological Agriculture Council of the Region (05/03/2019)

The Region of Murcia has the largest cultivated area of ​​the European Union in proportion to its territory, 22.2 percent, which translates into 80,000 hectares of organic farming.

The Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Miguel Ángel del Amor, after having a meeting with the Council of Organic Agriculture of the Region of Murcia (CAERM), visited, together with the mayor of San Pedro del Pinatar, Visitación Martínez, a plot of ultra-early peach and nectarine crops from Camposeven, a company dedicated to ecological agriculture and a pioneer in the region in biodynamic agriculture.

This biodynamic technique is based on the interrelation between soils, plants and animals, to look for a balance in the ecosystem.

This type of practice uses a series of biodynamic preparations for fertilization, uses several organic compounds that come from flowers, plants or bark of trees and also, the dates of sowing are conditioned to the lunar phases.

Currently, there is a strong demand for Murcian producers in the organic market, generating a greater social awareness about the consumption of healthy foods.

The organic products that are most generated in the region are nuts with 30,000 hectares, cereals with 14,500 hectares and vineyards with about 12,200 hectares.

"Only in the Campo de Cartagena there are around 3,000 hectares of organic crops, including horticultural, citrus and almond trees," said the counselor.

In addition, he continued, "a large part of these organic products are destined for export, especially to Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Switzerland".

Del Amor stressed that "thanks to this type of crops, a quality, sustainable and healthier agriculture is encouraged, which is an improvement for the environment".

Ecological agricultural and livestock production is regulated by European regulations that establish the rules of production, labeling and how products should be controlled until they reach the consumer.

The CAERM is the public authority that is responsible for applying the control system of Ecological Agriculture in the Region of Murcia.
