- Are linket to agriculture in Greenland


New archaeological research has found evidence that agriculture was practised by the Vikings in South Greenland as long ago as the time of Erik the Red. However, it was not until 1915, when the first sheep breeding station was established in Julianehåb, that a foundation was created in Greenland's recent history for the development of a true agricultural industry. Since then, sheep farming, in particular, has provided part of the income of many families in the large, fertile areas around Narsaq. In 1995, Neqi slaughtered 18,000 animals – a figure that has risen to approximately 23,000 in recent years.
