  • The Croatian Chamber of Agriculture (HPK) has called on consumers, buyers, and traders to help domestic vegetable producers and buy their vegetables to help relieve an unenviable market situation in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
  • HPK leaders also warned against the growth of imports, stating that in the first three months of this year, Croatia imported 56,072 tons of vegetables worth as much as €46.37 million.
  • Farmers expect the new government will be formed as soon as possible so that the severe economic situation caused by the coronavirus crisis does not spill over to other sectors in the autumn and further threaten agricultural production.
