SCA3P cooperative territory

SCA3P's collection territory is divided into 2 main zones separated by the Durance River.

Champ de lavande pour l'huile essentielle de lavande en Provence

   1. The Plateau de Valensole, located to the east of the Durance in the Alpes-de-Haute Provence department, is a major production zone for the Cooperative where over 250 tons of lavandin is produced. This zone is characterised by highly specialised farms where all the factors of production have been optimised. The farms are located on varying altitudes, from 400 to 800 metres.

   2. The second zone is located to the west of the Durance in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Vaucluse departments, and includes the Plateau d'Albion.  This large zone produces around 120 tons of lavender and lavandin. It is a fairly heterogeneous sector with soil and climate varying from the medium-altitude northern Luberon valleys to the high, dry plateaux in the Sault, Banon and Simiane la Rotonde areas, with popular (or "fine") lavender cultivations located up to 1,300 metres in altitude.
