Shortage of 100,000 migrant seasonal farm laborers in Italy

According to Italian farmers' association Coldiretti, Italy needs at least 100,000 seasonal migrant farmworkers to guarantee the fruit and vegetable harvest during the upcoming summer season. The association said in a statement that farms across Italy desperately "need the workers requested but, as of today, authorizations have not been released yet" by offices in prefectures in charge of immigration.

The statement by Coldiretti was released after Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese announced a new decree on migrant flows: "The government is working to approve the next decree on flows that will have to take into account the growing needs of several economic sectors," the minister said in an interview published by Rome daily La Repubblica on Thursday.

Coldiretti also highlighted that compared to 2021, "the quotas of non-EU workers admitted by decree in Italy was raised to 69,000 and, of these, 42,000 places were reserved to agriculture, while requests were submitted for 100,000."
