POLYTUNNELS: Essential to Almeria agriculture

FINANCIAL help for 19 El Ejido growers has arrived from the Junta de Andalucia. The regional government’s delegate for Agriculture Jose Manuel Ortiz Bono presented €956,216 which will go towards repairing 27 hectares of greenhouses damaged by the January storms.
Ortiz was accompanied by Jose Vicente Simon, director of OCA, the Junta’s local agricultural office in La Mojonera.
When allocating these grants, the Junta gave positive assessments to installations that were insured, provided employment, belonged to a cooperative or had suffered more than 50 per cent damage. Those accepting official aid are also required to continue production for five years and take out insurance.
