Argentinian Citrus Grove

Cindy Zimmerman

ifaj13-orangesWe told you earlier about our visit to La Campiña, owned by Cesar and Mónica Cahen D’Anvers, near Rosario, Argentina. The main crop grown on this farm is oranges – both a local variety and navels – and they are cultivated for export to mostly European markets as well as in the making of various juices, jams, jellies and candies that are sold on the farm.

In the video below, La Campiña farm operators explain the varieties and how they are maintained, as well as how they are working to keep the grove from becoming infested with citrus greening, which is a disease well known to Florida citrus growers and to Argentina’s neighbors in Brazil.
