Spain gives crop protection funds for farmers

The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture is spending €41.2 million ($64.2 million) in subsidies for use on crop protection this year. The largest segment of the funds will be to support the “fight against pests”. Some €17.7 million ($27.6 million) will be distributed among Spanish regions for the control of horticultural crop viruses, Mediterranean fruit flies and locusts. Some of the same funds will be shared among regions that have declared the presence of olive flies and set up control programmes. Other funds will be available for: preventive measures against crop pests (€2.9 million - $4.5 million); the promotion of new technology including machinery; aiding plant health groups of one to six years’ standing; EU-approved groups promoting IPM systems; and co-operatives that cover a minimum crop area.
