Cyprus: Potato farmers want government intervention as costs continue to rise

Yesterday, Cypriot potato farmers said they will no longer be able to carry on planting their crop because of the continued increases in the price of oil and fertilizer.

President of the organizing committee of potato farmers, Andreas Karyos: “Potato farmers have no money to subsidize the product since the cost cannot be passed on to the consumer. With the costs that exist due to constant increases in the prices of oil, fertilizers and others, farmers can no longer afford to work.”
