Living on Estancia in Uruguay.
In less than two years this beautiful farm estate in Uruguay has successfully been transformed into a commercial crop farm with excellent results. In 2011 the owner started growing commercial crops on this farm. Currently 70% of the entire farm is being used for the cultivation of grains. 300 hectares of soybeans have been harvested in May 2013 and the entire crop area has already been planted with barley as a winter crop. In Uruguay it is possible to have this type of double cropping on fertile soils.
2012 was the first full year with commercial cultivation of soybeans and wheat at this property. Both crops did very well with yields well above the national average. Soybeans harvested in May/June 2012 saw yields of 2.800 kg per hectare and wheat (harvested in November 2012) resulted in 3.000 kg per hectare. The cultivation of commercial crops is complemented with the fattening of Hereford cows on the remaining part of this beautiful farm.
The owner has recently renewed fences along the access road and has also planted new fruit trees in the garden.
Apart from highly productive farmland this property also offers high quality residential facilities at a unique location between Montevideo (80 km) and Punta del Este (100 km) in Canelones at 30 min. drive from international airport Carrasco.
