Big losses due to the rain

Chile: Government to provide financial assistance

The rains in late November destroyed part of the production of the Maule Region.

The government announced they would assist the cherry producers from the Maule region that were affected by the rains with $100 million pesos (US $160,000).

The Minister of Agriculture, Carlos Furche, stated that the deadlines to pay the credits to the Indap would be extended and that they would subsidize farmers so they could recover economically.

The sector believes that the installation of covers is an alternative that would help them protect their cherry orchards in the future and have asked the government for aids to finance such facilities.
