After consulting with several agents in the sector, cooperatives, producer organizations, brokers, producers and all members of the Lonja de Cítricos, Asaja Córdoba has estimated that the next citrus harvest in the province of Córdoba will be around 15-20% smaller than last season, when a record volume was achieved.
Among the businesses to have suffered most economic harm during the destructive “gota fría” storm of 12 to 14th September are many crop farmers whose land disappeared under floodwater, but arguably even more severe damage was done to the tuna fish farm belonging to Grupo Ricardo Fuentes 4.5 kilometres off the coast of San Pedro del Pinatar and Pilar de la Horadada.
The damages that the flooding in Murcia and other parts of southern Spain has caused have not been fully evaluated yet, but attempts are being made to do so. The first estimates issued by the Consortium of Insurance Compensation (CCS) are that 30,000 claimants will be entitled to pay-outs of totalling to about 190 million euros.
According to the Valencian Association of Agricultural Producers (AVA-Asaja), 30% of the area planted with grapes in the region of Vinalopó has been affected by the recent storms. According to the first estimates, which will have to be confirmed in the near future, some 4,000 hectares with a value that could reach 14 million Euro have been affected.
