MP Ferhat asks about the delayed loss money for 2022 and 2023

In a parliamentary question addressed to the Minister of Agricultural Development and Food, the MP for Rodopi, Özgür Ferhat, raised the issue of the delay in the payment of the loss payments due to the farmers in the prefecture of Rodopi in 2022 and 2023 by the Greek State Agricultural Compensation Agency (ELGA).

Deputy Özgür Ferhat, conveying his views on the fact that farmers, who are experiencing economic difficulties, have not received their damage money, asked the minister when the damages caused by unfavourable weather conditions and droughts will be paid.

In particular, the bad and unfavourable weather conditions during the summer months (temperatures exceeding 40 degrees Celsius followed by winds with a force of 7-8) led to a loss of weight in cotton and corn production in the Rhodope region and jeopardised the support premium per acre (Sindedemeni).

MP Ferhat asked the competent minister whether there is any idea to cover the agricultural damages not covered by ELGA from de minimis or special state funds.

He also asked the producers who experienced weight loss in their harvests what measures they intend to take in order not to cut the premium support per acre as in 2015-2019.e
