ECOLOGICAL HIGH DENSITY OLIVE GROVES
The ecological olive grove must be subjected to control so that the oil obtained can subsequently be sold with the denomination “ecological”. To ensure this, the ecological olive grower must notify any of the authorised private companies in his Community of the activity and subject the company to the control system. Through visits to the olive exploitation and analyses, these companies will verify and guarantee that the olive growers have complied with the legislation which regulates the production.
To date, the simplest and fastest way to have an ecological high density olive grove is to raise it as “non-ecological” during the first 3 years. Once the high density grove is formed, request the transformation to ecological. This lasts for three years. During this time, the oil obtained can be sold as “oil in conversion to ecological”. Once this transition period has finalised, the oil can be sold as “biological” or “ecological”.
