AGRICULTURAL SECTION

For more than 40 years, Alcaliber has had its own poppy crops.

They are managed by the company in their entirety, being fully back integrated, ranging from planting to harvesting, by a large team of professionals and agricultural engineers.

Agricultural Production Department

Alcaliber has developed and managed its own crops since the 1970’s. We have over 40 years’ experience and an excellent team of agricultural engineers in order to achieve the best crop yields using the most advanced agricultural production technology. Alcaliber advises its poppy farmers at all times, ensuring optimum crop development and reconciling the need for fertilizers and pesticides in order to meet the highest production requirements with fulfillment of current environmental regulations.

Alcaliber cultivated over 14,000 hectares of Papaver somniferum in 2014, located in different geographical areas throughout Spain, in order to ensure maximum crop yield regardless of weather conditions.

And thanks to our research and constant improvement, we have developed our own new varieties that enhance, among other aspects, total alkaloid content in the capsule, not to mention single-variety crops and resistance to mildew and other diseases.
