Apple trees

Index card


​​​​​​You are now on the Ter’s alluvial plain with its very fertile soil, like most of the land in the region, something which has enabled a great variety of crops to proliferate. Intensive irrigated agriculture has developed in the area, based around orchards of fruit trees, predominantly apple trees (photo), peach trees and cherry trees.

These crops have been accompanied by a very large increase in intensive irrigated sweetcorn and sunflower crops, and other cereal and fodder crops which are normally located further inland (wheat, barley, oats, rye, sweetcorn, sorghum and alfalfa) share this space with them. There are also crops of legumes, root vegetables and various market garden products.
