Soil type

En cuanto al tipo de terreno o suelo, podemos encontrar distintas texturas. Hay que tener en cuenta que no todas las parcelas son iguales ni tienen las mismas características. Incluso dentro de una misma parcela, con una variación de unos cuantos metros de distancia, estas características pueden variar. Por ese motivo podemos encontrar varios tipos de texturas dentro de una misma parcela.

En el caso de la Finca de Consell, podemos encontrar zonas o sectores con texturas tipo franco, tipo arcilloso y otros tipo arcilloso-limoso.

This allowed us to observe the characteristics of the soil on our estate and determine if the same patterns as in other estates were present. It turned out that unlike the other estates, where different soil textures could be found within the same plot, Biniagual Estate doesn’t show this variation. The entire estate has the same soil texture, clayey.
