Prefecture of Drama: Economy
The economy of the prefecture relies mainly on agriculture as the few industries have closed down. In the plains of the southern part of the prefecture grains, cotton, tomatoes, tobacco, grapevines, fruits and vegetables are cultivated. There are extended cultivated areas in the lowlands of the south. The agriculture exploits to the fullest the water resources (of the rivers Nestos and Aggitis and the Kefalari springs), while the application of modern techniques have dramatically improved the agrarian economy.
