Default Agriculture in the Canaries

Hello all, I am currently doing some research into agriculture in the Canary Islands and wondered if anyone could point me in the direction of any commercial farms or companies that provide irrigation services? I have also struggled to find data on the number and types of farms in the Canaries - would anyone know where I could find this?

Try these two links,

Here on the island of El Hierro we raise, pigs, cattle, sheep, and goats. We grow bananas, pineapples, citrus fruits, apples, pears, grapes for the local wine industry, vegetables, potatoes, corn, wheat, tomatoes, aubergines, papayas, avocados, mangos, mangas, olives, figs, chestnuts, plums, prickly pears, almonds, peaches, mulberries, strawberries.

Our water falls as rain, it is collected from our rooves, and stored in underground water deposits called Aljibes, we then pump ours into 500 litre tanks on the various garden terraces, we have to water nearly every day, and sometimes only get maybe three days rain in a year, but we can get up to 13 inches in one day. Cannot help you with companies that provide irrigation services, most people here seem to have well established systems for irrigation. Perhaps you should visit.

Re the links, highly unlikely that English will be understood, there are only five English residents on the island.
