For new olive-groves: site, cultivar, planting systems must be selected and harmonised so that regular yields of quality olives, and hence economic success, can be expected with a minimum use of agrochemicals and environmentally hazardous practices.

Exposition S and SW are generally recommended in colder areas. New plantations are not permitted in areas with slopes > 25% with exception for terraces or similar systems.

Sites with a favorable aspect and appropriate soils must be selected, avoiding the situations in which a continuous supply of inputs will be necessary. For instance, frost pockets (areas with high risk for frost and poor drainage situations) must be avoided as well as salty soils.
