Olive groves within the outdated Regime, that have been no longer very capitalised and had a amazing multifunctional nature, as defined above, seemed as an exploitation just like agroforestal makes use of, akin to dehesas or montados, than a thorough olive grove organised into rows. In different works, at the foundation of the overview of olive grove letting contracts within the area, among 1740 and 1850, the morphology in their landscapes has been documented (Infante-Amate 2012a, 2015). This resource frequently supplied info of the constitution of olive grove landscapes in Andalusia. the consequences bought point out that the olive groves from mountain parts which, as we've got saw in Fig. eight. 2, have been the place the crop unfold the least, seemed dispersed around the territory with out forming organised groves and, in different instances, have been linked to different plants. in reality, the land sign up resources from 1750 demonstrate multiple hundred municipalities during which there have been olive groves within the municipal zone yet during which no olive grove farm used to be registered as a monoculture. Olive groves, hence, have been dispersed; peppering the landscapes of the mountain parts, built-in into different farming components, or joined with cattle exploitations. In geographical region components, the place olive groves had a extra striking presence, it used to be extra universal to discover them organised into rows, the place the most exploitation was once the construction of olives. although, in those locations too, a substantial a part of the olive groves seemed to be dispersed around the land, in cereal farms, irrigated gardens and woodland and pasture components. The evaluate of the rural land registers from the 19th century indicates us that during a few counties with a substantial olive-producing specialisation, a really excessive percent of the olive groves are registered as dispersed, of negative caliber, or low creation. they're characterized as olive grove farms with only a few toes according to hectare—between forty and 50—in which the creation of olives is mixed with the exploitation of its plant disguise as pasture. even though it is hard to quantify the measurement of this version of exploitation, it kind of feels transparent that till good into the 19th century the main ordinary olive grove used to be a multifunctional crop, during which the extractions of wooden should be more than the appropriation of fruit. They grew in no specific order in different different types of exploitations, and animals grazed on them after they weren't a part of fields or vines. within the municipality of Baena, the epicentre of the specialisation of Andalusian olive oil, in 1858, 40 % of the olive grove floor region used to be defined as “dispersed”, generating among a hundred and 200 kg/ha in comparison to 1220 kg/ha of the higher caliber. even if, the latter in basic terms occupied 6 % of the land. Likewise, in in depth olive grove components just about town of Seville, in 1900, it used to be insisted that the olive grove pastures have been used (Infante-Amate 2014). in some way, as highlighted by means of the ecologist González Bernáldez (1981), olive groves seemed as a panorama as a result of Mediterranean wooded area, the fruit of human motion; comparable, for this reason, to platforms reminiscent of dehesa or montado.
