Farmer payouts to start in September

By Staff Reporter

FARMERS will receive some €18 million in compensation for damage to their crops, Agriculture Minister Nicos Kouyialis said on Tuesday.

Kouyialis said all the damage has been recorded and the first part of the compensation is expected to be paid in September.

The money will be paid by the Agriculture Insurance Organisation.

The minister said a large part of the amount will be paid for damage to cereals. Compensation will also be given for damage to vines, citrus trees and potato plants.

Kouyialis said additional aid has been requested from the EU because of the drought.

He said an effort is being made to convince EU partners that drought is a big problem in Cyprus even if the rest of Europe is not affected.
