Uruguay declares agricultural emergency due to drought


Uruguay declares agricultural emergency due to drought

Montevideo, Oct 21 (Prensa Latina) An agricultural emergency is currently in force in Uruguay due to the water and fodder deficit, which threatens the economy of the South American country weighted heavily on livestock and agriculture.

The Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture, and Fisheries (MGAP) decided this after Minister Fernando Mattos met with the Agricultural Emergency Committee to advise him about the issue.

This measure includes producers’ claims, climatic studies, and information from departmental governments, among other sources.

The prevailing drought and the prevalence of the so-called La Niña weather event affect winter crops and the start of those of the southern summer.

This week, the unanimous plenary session of legislators requested Mattos to declare an agricultural emergency to release rescue and support funds to producers.
