The Hungarian government is committed to strengthening the economy of rural areas under the "Renewable Countryside, Renewable Agriculture" program, the latest stage of which calls for proposals to prevent spring frost damage, Minister of Agriculture István Nagy announced Wednesday, according to profitline.hu.
The purpose of the tender call is to support controlling spring frost damage, to reduce the production risks arising from spring frost damage, and to eliminate them in fruit production.
This year alone, nearly 30,000 hectares of agricultural land were damaged by the spring frost, which meant a huge loss of production and loss of income for farmers, and this must be combated by all means, the communication stressed.
The tenders are intended to support the purchase and installation of tools, equipment and technology for the prevention of spring frost damage, such as fixed or mobile air mixing equipment, autonomous heat generation equipment or towed heat generation equipment. The planned budget available for support is HUF 5 billion.
