    Movements in the Prices for Greek Olive Oil

    Despite the pressure of the Spanish overproduction to the markets, Greek prices for extrissima olive oils of very good organoleptic characteristics stand above 2,90 € / kg.

    The latest auctions from agricultural cooperatives in Laconia, Peloponnese, ranged between 2,91-2,95 € / kg .

    For lampante olive oil prices fell at 1,70 € / kg, due to the record production in Spain and the wave of imports in Greece.

    Similar pressures feel the virgin olive oils category, where prices continued downwards to 2,20 € / kg.

    All eyes are now focused at the new harvest and everybody hopes for a normal fruit set.

    The application of compost of olive mill waste could increase olive oil content

    Composting is a method for preparing organic fertilizers that represents a suitable management option for the recycling of two-phase olive mill waste (TPOMW) in agriculture.

    Four different composts were prepared by mixing TPOMW with different agro-industrial by-products (olive pruning, sheep manure and horse manure), which were used either as bulking agents or as N sources.

    The mature composts were added during six consecutive years to a typical “Picual” olive tree grove in the Jaén province (Spain).
