Estancia Figueroa is a beautiful place with native forestry land near the natural water reservoirs. Located in the province of Santiago del Estero in Northern Argentina, it is situated at the southwestern margins of the vast Gran Chaco lowland plains, extending onto the piedmont of the Andes Mountains in the far west.
The province has a dry, subtropical climate with summer rains. The Dulce River and Salado Rivers (which can dry up in the dry season) are formed from tributaries of the Andes onto the plains of Santiago del Estero, diagonally draining the province from northwest to southeast.
Consequently, the seasonal nature of the region’s rainfall and poor drainage makes consistently profitable agriculture possible only through irrigation from the Dulce and Salado rivers. The primary irrigated crops are cotton, alfalfa, grapes, squash, sweet potatoes and assorted melons. In addition, cattle, mules and goats are raised in both irrigated and non-irrigated areas. Moreover, the province is crossed by several railways, which connect it with many parts of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile.
