Ministry of Agriculture publishes document on production cost of certain agricultural products

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries, on Monday, released a document presenting the updated production cost of different agricultural products, taking into account the cost of each product, in order to allow lenders including the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT) to codify seasonal borrowing operations to farmers, especially small ones.

The document indicates the cost of production of 82 agricultural products divided between field crops, fruit trees, irrigated and non-irrigated vegetable products, dairy cow farming, fattening of calves and finally honey production and beekeeping.

The ministry indicated that the BCT will no longer issue seasonal loan financing criteria under the old formula. The publication will henceforth include only the share of financing of each group.

In Tunisia, farmers face difficulties in accessing seasonal credit because of the lack of clear criteria for obtaining credit and debt, knowing that the Ministry will update these data, through the directorate general of financing and investments.

The new document can be consulted on the website of the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries and the National Observatory of Agriculture.
