The Guardia Civil found the marijuana plantation, which they say is Spain’s largest producing one, in Fuensalida, in central Spain.
According to police, the gang who created the plantation had invested nearly €200,000 in it on an isolated rural property in Fuensalida.
Officers say they confiscated 2,466 plants, 982 grams of buds and a handgun from the plantation.
Police say their investigation began after receiving a tip off about a possible marijuana farm and they began looking into a property in Fuensalida.
After searching the property, police found 2,466 plants. They said: “These plants, on which there was a thin mesh that determined their maximum height level, were of an unprecedented variety that require less growth to produce numerous branches and blooms, being able to achieve a harvest in just 25 days.”
In the search carried out in the part of the property that the owners were living in, police say they found a handgun and several knives.
Police from the Guardia Civil detained a man and a woman for the crime of cultivating or producing narcotics, and have made them available to the corresponding Court of First Instance and Instruction of the Guard of Torrijos.

Not largest, EWN covered a larger grow with 30 times as many plants here https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/03/28/guardia-civil-find-64800-cannabis-plants-in-almeria/
Also, the mesh screen is not to limit growth, it is to support the upper branches. Also there are no marijuana plants that mature in less than 7 weeks, period! Do some research before posting articles that make you look stupid.
Willy thank you for your observation.
The information contained in the article was taken from the official press release of the Guardia Civil who the writer understandably assumed would be correct.
