A study carried out by Agro.Ges, a consultancy specialising in agricultural matters, concluded that the production of avocado in the Algarve will generate annual revenue of 40 million euros in the creation of GVA – Gross Added Value.

There are currently an estimated 1,833 hectares of avocado growing in the Algarve. Currently the contribution is already 20 million euros to the region's annual economy.

Addressing water concerns, the study further indicates that water used by avocado farming is, on average, 6,500 m3/ha per year, which is similar to the average for dominant crops, in some cases even less.
