Excessive red tape, combined with lack of access to land and proper rural infrastructure, continues to be the main obstacle to attracting young men and women in Spain’s agriculture sector. EFE Agro reports.
The 44 million workers in the EU’s food chain are vital to ensuring European citizens have access to sufficient quantities of high quality food. From farmers to retailers, the sector is constantly evolving to keep up with the major challenges of the future.
Seeds, fertilisers, pesticides, fuel, feed, irrigation equipment, water and power: all have an impact on farmer's income. EURACTIV’s partner EFEAgro spoke to sector experts about these farming essentials.
