Italian farmers predict food shortages

“Harvesting in June will not be possible.”

28 Mar 2018 – “The heavy rain is causing delays in the Fucino area. The soil is soaked, so you can’t even set foot in the fields. We usually sow spring and summer carrots this time of year, but everything’s been compromised. Onions destined to the domestic market won’t probably even be sown,” explained Domenico Fidanza, Councillor for Agriculture at the Celano municipality.

“It probably won’t be possible to access the fields for another 20 days, provided it stops raining. Harvesting in June will not be possible, affecting hundreds of local businesses.
