THE Spanish Agriculture Ministry is to invest more than €18.5 million to update the irrigation systems of 2,700 hectares of land devoted to subtropical fruit like avocados and mangos.

Nearly 1,100 farmers from Velez-Malaga and the western Axarquia will benefit from the Guaro irrigation plan.

Velez-Malaga mayor Francisco Delgado Bonilla stated this investment would bring “jobs and wealth” to the area. National government sub-delegate Jorge Hernandez Mollar said it would guarantee the water supply to the area.
