Over 390 thousand quintals of cereals collected in El Kef governorate until July 25 (CRDA)

The quantities of cereals collected in the governorate of El Kef until July 25 are estimated at more than 390 thousand quintals, said Bechir Mrabhi, responsible for the promotion of agricultural production at the Regional Commissariat for Agricultural Development (French CRDA) in El Kef.

He said in a statement to TAP correspondent in the region that the harvest season will soon be completed affecting nearly 85 thousand ha out of a total of 190 thousand ha sown.

The drop in harvest for this season is due to the severe drought in March and April, in addition to the spring hail that affected the fields north of the governorate, said Abderraouf Chebbi, president of the farmers’ union in El Kef.

The El Kef governorate is considered a disaster area this year, he said.

In turn, EL Kef Regional Agriculture and Fisheries Union called on the government to compensate the affected farmers and help them reschedule seasonal credits for the 2017/2018 agricultural season.
