Finally, a detailed study of the aeropalynology of types having important socio- economic implications in the region (such as the olive), in which palynological, meteorological, and agronomical data are contrasted, offers the possibility of forecasting when pollen will start to be present in the air (which is very important in the field of allergies) and the size of the crop (which is very important for agriculture).
