MOCORETÁ: THE HEART OF MESOPOTAMIA REGION. THE BEST CITRUS GROVES LANDS

The Mesopotamia Argentina is a huge geographic region bounded by large rivers, a feature that provides one of the greatest natural wealth of the country. The three provinces that make up this "giant island" have the greatest variety of plant and animal species throughout the Argentine territory. In its flora and fauna are more than 2000 known species of vascular plants, more than 400 birds (one third of the total Argentina) and countless insects, many still unidentified.

In this context, on the border between the provinces of Entre Rios and Corrientes is Mocoretá, a quiet village nestled in one of the areas with most citrus activity, where almost all of its inhabitants work in farms producing oranges and tangerines, in factories of citrus derivatives, or in packing houses where the selected fruit is prepared for export .
