Drought: Parmigiani (Confagricoltura), ‘the situation is serious’

-

“The situation this year is really serious, impressive and worrying”. Giovanna Parmigiani, member of the national council of Confagricoltura with responsibility for the environment and territory, outlines the situation created by drought in agriculture in these terms at Adnkronos. “We got there with the sum of various factors starting with the low rainfall and snow of this winter: therefore – she explains – the reservoirs have not been filled and the lakes have not reached their maximum capacity, let’s say that in spring the first signs are already there were “. “Everything was further aggravated by the fact that in the last three months, especially in the north, it has not rained and then we have reached temperatures of 3 degrees higher than the historical ones: therefore the water shortage is very high in a year in which we farmers are asked to produce more to try to make up for the shortcomings generated by the conflict in Ukraine. However, if we do not have water to irrigate this becomes very difficult “continues Parmigiani who is herself an agricultural entrepreneur with a company in the Piacenza area. The Italian production is already lower than the average. “The data on the harvest of wheat, wheat and barley are coming in these days: the average decrease is estimated between 20 and 30%. Probably in Puglia where the drought is very strong they will be even more decreasing” he says, explaining that Confagricoltura has asked for a greater release from basins where water is routinely used for hydroelectric production. Among the requests also that the reduction of excise duties on agricultural diesel be extended. In the face of drought “as Confagricoltura we have asked for a greater release from basins in which water is used for hydroelectricity but this year we must also produce more energy. We fear a water war – continues Parmigiani – because they need it for electricity and we farmers need it to produce. Among other things, the diesel oil used for pumps costs much more, so we have costs much higher: this is why we ask that the system of reductions applied to agricultural diesel fuel be continued “.
