Spain has traditionally been an agricultural producer of some import and rapid agricultural development of the past two decades has placed it among world and European leaders in the production and trade of some commodities. Currently, Spain is the largest olive oil producer in the world, the largest exporter of oranges in the world, has 'the largest vineyard in the world, Is the largest broiler producer in Western Europe, has the largest irrigated agricultural area in Western Europe, and is second only to Italy in the production of horticultural crops. These facts and the apparent great potential for increased production has frightened many European Community (EC) farmers, particularly the French, when the prospects of an enlarged Community Spain are contemplated.
