FARM ESTANCIA FIGUEROA

OFFERED FOR SALE AT US$ 13,250,000

26,500 hectares of virgin land in Argentina

Farm 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 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.

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. Cattle, mules and goats are raised in both irrigated and non-irrigated areas. The province is crossed by several railways, which connect it with many parts of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile.

Land Features

  • Location: The land for sale is located between Santiago del Estero, the capital of the province (90 km away), and the largest two cities to the east of the most developed areas of the province which are Campo Gallo and Tintina (about 100 km distance).
  • Total size: 26,500 hectars
  • Type: Virgin landThe 26,500 hectares.
  • Opportunity: The ideal place for carbon sequestration projects or regenerative farming.
  • Climate and precipitation The Figueroa District has an average annual rainfall of approximately 550 mm and an average temperature of + 20.3 ° Celsius ranging from 47°C to -7° C.
  • Water and Rivers: Having water resources on the land is essential for its agricultural development. The Salado River flows along the Estancia Figueroa. The land is adjacent to a relatively sizeable dam (Dique Figueroa) which is the largest advantage of this farm over comparable areas in the wider area. Today the dam Dique Figueroa prevents flooding of the land from the Salado River when it otherwise overflow. Water from the dam can be used for irrigation by means of the already existing canals. As a result, there is sufficient water available for an all year irrigation operation. The dam is being fed by the Salado River which brings water from the Andes mountains.
  • Roads: Well-maintained roads servicing the Figueroa Dam also allow easy access to the property all year round, which is rather exceptional for comparable properties in the wider area.
  • Land use potential: The local climate, available water resources, and appropriate technology allow for the cultivation of alfalfa, sorghum, and maize, as well as breeding cattle in conjunction with planting various grass species.  A yield of 5,000 to 6,000 kg per hectare can be expected for maize and sorghum crops. Even the cultivation of cotton and varieties of fruit is possible.
  • Cattle breeding: The area is very suitable for cattle raising and breeding using regenerative grazing method. 
  • Fences: The land is not yet fenced in. Investing in fencing in Estancia Figueroa will in itself increase the value of the land.

REASONS FOR ARGENTINA'S AGRICULTURAL STRENGTH

Competitive advantages in areas such as soil potency, rainfall, existing infrastructure and wealth of arable land

A range of climates provides opportunities in a diverse range of agricultural areas

Recent growth in the production and exportation of cereals (notably corn, wheat, and soy).

Agriculture in Argentina is an attractive sector for foreign investment in Latin America. Below are three main sectors with promising investment opportunities.

  • Producing and exporting agricultural products
  • Modernizing transport and logistics
  • Renewable energy

Why invest in farmland in Argentina?

  • Argentina is one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of cereals and oilseeds and it is also among the 10 biggest beef and poultry producers on a global scale.
  • The agriculture sector has a key socio-economic role for Argentina, accounting for 5.6% of the GDP, 5.4% of formal employment and 29.3% of the national exports.
  • The removal of export tariffs and quotas on key agricultural products in 2015 triggered a much needed restructuring process in the crop industry, which saw an increase in cereal production and a decline in soybean production.
  • The Argentinian agricultural sector provides a solid base for the economy and provides a wealth of business opportunities for foreign investors. The rise of the agriculture sector after a slump during the beginning of the 21st century can be attributed partly to the reduction/elimination of export taxes and the dismantlement of export quotas that were affecting the production. These restrictions have been removed and producers are now starting to regain their competitiveness in the global economy thus opening doors for investors looking to get involved in the Argentinian agriculture industry.
