Cordoba (EFE).- The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planaswarned this Friday that the request of agrarian employers for a postponement of the application of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Due to “legal uncertainty”, this would mean that Spanish farmers and ranchers “would not receive a single euro”.

A successful CAP that cannot be stopped

In this sense, he stressed that “we must look to the future” and, after describing the agreement as excellent, he warned that “if any non-compliance occurs”, such as “the return to back” or the delay of the CAP, this would imply that “on 1 January” farmers and breeders “would not receive a single euro”.

On the other hand, Planas pointed out that the demand of the irrigators to set up the double tariff for irrigation, as envisaged by the food chain law, “is not situated in the current context”, which “is to make an investment” and is committed to sustainable irrigation” favoring “renewable energies”.

Also, regarding the Andalusian idea of ​​abolishing the water cannon, the minister asked for clarification that “if it is abolished” it means that “there will be no hydraulic works” in Andalusia or “that they are going to ask Madrid or the European Union” for the money that the Junta de Andalucía “does not want to collect”.

“Someone is always paying here,” added Planas, who considered it “deeply unfair” that Andalusia made “a donation to 18,000 people in the amount of 95 million euros” with the the announcement of the abolition of property tax in the region, while “eight and a half million people have to pay more to pay for this gift”.

Finally, he assured that the government would “reflect” on the proposal to reduce the number of workers so that the olive grove sector can receive aid and recommended “waiting for capacity” this year, which is estimated to be lower. to the previous one, to see “how much does this logically change the load”.
