German farmers’ dissatisfaction ‘going nowhere’ – DPA

The head of the German Farmers’ Union Joachim Rukwid, who organised mass protests of farmers at the beginning of the year, said that farmers continue to be dissatisfied with the policy of the authorities in the field of agriculture. This was reported by the DPA news agency.


Joachim Rukwid organised large-scale farmer protests against government plans to cut subsidies for farmers.

“The discontent is going nowhere. We need a restructuring of agricultural policy, and if this does not happen, discontent will grow,” DPA quoted the head of the farmers’ union as saying.

According to him, the situation in Germany’s agricultural sector is still difficult. Fertiliser, crop protection products and energy costs remain high, he said.

“We assume that profits will fall sharply in many sectors of production: unfortunately, this is no longer just a fear,” – summarised Joachim Rukwid.

We will remind, earlier in the press service of the State border service of Ukraine said that Polish farmers may block the work of the checkpoint “Shegini-Medika” until the end of September.
