EVOOlution Project

EVOOlution is a unique technological project for the monitoring and selection of olives suitable for the oil mill. By classifying each olive, one by one, by maturity index and by the possible presence of defects, it guarantees the maximum quality of premium oils. Thanks to the technology, up to 25 tonnes of olives per hour (12.5 million fruits) can be visually analysed.

Life Olivares Vivos Project

Our farm Cortijo Guadiana, is participating in the Life Olivares Vivos Project which aims to improve the situation of olive groves and recover their biodiversity. Within the framework of this project, two Bio-islands have been installed floating plants to house different genera of birds and gradually generate habitats suitable for nesting and raising young.

Biferoliva R&D Project

The BIFEROLIVA project is based on creating fertilisation strategies for olive groves based on the circular economy. The objective is to develop a new generation of 100% natural fertilisers, enriched with by-products derived from olive oil production (basically pruning residues but also olive pomace) and to determine their beneficial nutritional action on the trees from an agronomic point of view, but also their effects on the final quality of the olive oils.

TERRAACQUA Project

TERRAACQUA is an R&D project whose main objective is to obtain olives with a high concentration of potentially healthy compounds (antioxidants and anticarcinogenic) for the subsequent production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a high added value and its relationship with the physiological behaviour of the trees. In order to obtain these oils, the cultivation is approached from an integral point of view, studying the physico-chemical properties of the olive tree and their relationship with its physiological behaviour, using the latest technologies in the field of agronomy.
