Croatia should support investments to modernize agriculture with technologies, say Homeland Movement MPs
Homeland Movement MPs Vesna Vucemilovic and Ruzica Vukovac said that Croatia should invest funds to enable the introduction of cutting-edge technologies and innovations in farming, warning that growers are fighting for survival.
“Even though for the past 10 years we have recorded a constant, worrying fall in the number of family-run OPG dairy farms, Croatia is not doing anything to prevent the total collapse of milk and meat production,” MP Vukovac told a press conference.
She added that around 50,000 dairy farms had been lost and that milk production had contracted by 11 per cent.
Policies implemented in Croatia over the past decade have led to the destruction of that sector and emigration from rural regions, she added.
