Data from the National Statistics Institute (INE), at the end of October, also point to drops of 20% in apples and 15% in almonds.

Spring arable crops were also affected by the severe drought conditions present throughout their vegetative cycle, with production decreases of 10% in corn for irrigated grain and 15% in rice and tomato for industry.

INE's agricultural forecasts attribute the drop in production to the climate: "The 2021/22 agricultural year, which took place between November 1, 2021 and October 31, 2022, was the warmest since 1931, with an average temperature of 16, 4°C (a value similar to those that occurred in the 1996/97 and 2016/17 agricultural years). It was also the third least rainy since 1931".
