Agriculture of Fuerteventura.



Fuerteventura is characterized by its year-round warm climate, its arid soils and its low mountain formations. The island´s wide spaces seem to be the perfect condition for an profitable agricultural activity. Unfortunately the much to low precipitations and the lack of workers act counterproductively.

Agriculture in Fuerteventura

The main agricultural products grown on Fuerteventura are different types of corn (wheat, barley, maize) which play an important role in the production of gofio (toasted wheat or maize flour). But there are also some vegetables, e.g. tomatoes, onions, garlic and potatoes, salad and figs that are grown here, preferibly in greenhouses under the usage of artificial irrigation systems.

Furthermore is used the typical picón-soil which helps to avoid the loss of water. With the help of controlled deployment of organic and anorgaic fertilizers and bumble bees (pollination) it is tried to keep the agriculture as natural as possible.

For a short time now, the aloe vera plant has been grown on Fuerteventura in order to take advantage of the many medicinal benefits in the cosmetical and pharmaceutical industry. The year round warm and sunny weather and its nutrient and mineral rich water makes Fuerteventura an ideal place of growing the aloe vera. The medicinal benefits of the aloe vera can be availed of in many different ways, e.g. as drink or gel. The drink has a cleaning and tonic effect and can even help regulating one´s cholesterol and glucose values. In contrast the gel is a fantastic moisturiser having an analgic and curative affect on stressed skin, especially after intensive sun bathing or light burnings.

Another agricultural product is the goat cheese (queso majorero) which is produced from the milk of the domestic goat (cabra majorera) which is perfectly adapted to the climate and arid vegetation of Fuerteventura and lives freely in the nature.
