Rural Organizations Urge Government to Address Financial and Agricultural Challenges

After three months of silence, the liaison table renews its demand for extension of rule increasing producer credit costs

The rural liaison table has once again requested a meeting with the president of the Central Bank (BCRA) to address rising credit costs for producers and the risks posed by food imports. This request came after a meeting between various rural organizations, who expressed frustration at the lack of response to their previous requests made three months ago. They specifically highlighted the need for an extension of the rule that increases interest rates for wheat and soybean producers with more than 5% of stocks, given the upcoming credit needs for the next campaign.

The rural groups also raised concerns about food imports and their potential impact on local producers. They emphasized the unequal conditions faced by domestic producers due to high taxes and inflation, particularly in regional economies with unique cost structures. The group criticized excessive tax increases and fees imposed by different levels of government, calling on legislators to consider the impact of these measures on producers and the overall economy.

In addition to their financial concerns, rural entities also raised issues related to Foot and Mouth Disease Vaccination Campaigns. They highlighted the high cost of vaccines in comparison to neighboring countries and pledged to raise this issue with control organizations. The group emphasized the critical situation facing many producers and called for urgent fiscal measures, including a reduction in export duties to stimulate production and boost the economy.

Overall, rural entities expressed a sense of urgency in addressing challenges facing producers and the agricultural sector. They highlighted the need for collaboration between all levels of government as well as proactive measures to support local production and ensure industry sustainability.
