Agri Ministry Introduces 5-point Support Package 

Crops

The Ministry of Agriculture has taken a number of policy measures in order to overcome recent challenges, Anikó Juhász, the Deputy State Secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture responsible for agriculture, pointed out according to the ministry's announcement on Friday at the 31st Farmer Expo in Debrecen (225 km east of Budapest).

In the past almost two and a half years, the livestock industry has been hit by serious challenges, she said.

In addition to the coronavirus, the rise in feed and energy prices, as well as the labor shortage, have put farmers in a difficult situation.

Juhász said that in view of the extraordinary drought situation, the ministry introduced a five-point package of measures to help farmers, including the livestock sector.

The most important thing for the sector is that the government has allocated HUF 3 billion in support to finance the bulk feed transport costs of livestock keepers struggling with supply problems.
