Agadir has witnessed a rapid development of berries. In less than 10 years, raspberries and blueberries have exceeded an area of 4,500 hectares under greenhouse and out-of-soil cultivation.
In addition to its favorable climate, Agadir has benefited from its technological advancement in greenhouse horticulture. Agadir has a park of greenhouses equipped with modern irrigation, off-ground techniques, and climate control equipment. This has made it possible to rapidly convert to soft fruit cultivation. Of course, technical expertise was crucial in ensuring this successful transition.
