Economic activity

Agriculture, particularly the tree crops (hazelnut, fruit, olive and carob), is the municipal district’s most significant economic resource. The amount of land dedicated to irrigated farming has increased with the drilling of new wells that receive water from the Francolí river basin: garden produce and strawberries. Livestock raising (cattle and pigs) and poultry farming complement the municipality’s primary sector. Industry has an important tradition, where agri-food sector is of special note.
