Comment on land area
According to a study about land concentration in Peru by CEPES, CIRAD and ILC (p.49), Agricol Athos controls or manages other lands through other companies linked to it, like Ica Pacific and Northbay, which bought or leased more than 1000 ha on the coast. An Agricol Athos' executive declared that this enterprise hold shares (from 8% to 100%) of 6 companies (idem, p.52). Thomas Siron: In other source 600 ha are mentioned, located in the valley of Ica.

Overall comment

Overall comment
Import of error check - Coordinator's overview comment: Issues with one source. Review. Import of error check - Reviewer's overview comment: Same issue as previous case: the first source seems incorrect. The datas might be from an other numero of the same review, Revista Agraria, perhaps this of june 2006 (about land concentration). In this case, the agricultural firm produces above all asparagus, whose Peru is the world first exportator. One of the problems of this especialization (perhaps most than land concentration), in particular in the Ica Valley, is the water consumption. Peru's coastal desert depended from the Andes's glaciers for its water supply, but climatic change is making these glaciers desappear. So, the intensive agriculture at big scale for export in what Peru had been especializing itself is unsustainable.
