The price of land for greenhouse crops in Almeria has increased, just like all other production costs. According to the provisional data referring to 2021 that was presented this month by the Ministry of Agriculture in the Annual Survey of Land Prices, the hectare of area for irrigated greenhouse vegetables has increased in Almeria by 5%, from 236,251 euros on average in 2020 to 247,783 euro in the last year, (i.e., +11,532 euro). Even though this variation is lower than the one recorded in 2020 over 2019 (+8.7% and about 18,993 euros), the difference compared to the previous years continues to grow.
