The agrarian organization ASAJA Alicante has positively assessed the royal decree law which is introducing temporary urgent measures on agricultural employment for the next fruit harvesting campaign in the province.
Still, ASAJA warns that the Alicante mountain cherry campaign, which is scheduled to start in early May, will need more ambitious measures, mainly in terms of mobility of people. For this reason, ASAJA is proposing the use of urban or school buses for the transfer of workers.
In any case, the medlar producers of the Marina Baixa, in Alicante, are breathing easier. In just a week, the bulk of the fruit's production will be ready, and thanks to the measures adopted, the problem of the lack of laborers for the current campaign has been partly solved, as the number of people interested in working in the fields has increased.
