Rural Liaison Table Urgently Seeks Solutions to Addressing Farmers’ Credit Challenges and Food Import Risks: A Fight for Sustainable Agriculture

After three months of silence, the liaison table renews its demand for extension of rule increasing producer credit costs

The rural liaison table once again approached the president of the Central Bank (BCRA) to discuss concerns about the rising cost of credit for producers and food import risks. The request came after a meeting between leaders of various rural organizations who expressed frustration at their previous requests made over three months ago. They specifically requested an extension of the rule that increases interest rates for wheat and soybean producers with more than 5% of stocks, given the upcoming credit needs for the next campaign.

During the meeting, ruralists also raised concerns about excessive tax increases and fees imposed by different levels of government, calling on legislators to consider their impact on producers and the overall economy. They emphasized the unequal conditions faced by domestic producers due to high taxes and inflation, particularly in regional economies with unique cost structures.

The group also criticized announced facilities for food imports, warning about their potential impact on local producers. They highlighted how high taxes and inflation make it difficult for domestic producers to compete with foreign imports. In addition, they pointed out how different levels of government impose additional costs on farmers through fees and taxes, further hindering their ability to succeed in the marketplace.

Furthermore, rural entities called attention to the high cost of Foot and Mouth Disease Vaccination Campaign compared to neighboring countries’ campaigns. They pledged to raise this issue with control organizations and conduct a consultation within their entities to gather more details on vaccine costs. Ruralists emphasized that many producers are facing critical situations due to rising costs and urged urgent fiscal measures such as a reduction in export duties to stimulate production and boost the economy.

Overall, rural entities expressed a sense of urgency in addressing challenges facing farmers and agriculture as a whole. They highlighted the need for collaboration between all levels of government, proactive measures supporting local production, and ensuring sustainability in agriculture industry.

In summary, rural liaison table members met with BCRA president again seeking solutions for rising credit costs faced by farmers due to increasing interest rates on wheat and soybean loans with more than 5% stock percentage during upcoming campaigns’ financing period.

Ruralists also raised concerns about food import risks due to announced facilities that could negatively affect local production’s competitiveness in regional markets because domestic farmers face unequal conditions like high taxes or inflation.

Additionally, they criticized excessive tax increases imposed by different levels of government on farmers while advocating for legislative review based on its impact on both producers’ well-being as well as overall economic growth.

Furthermore, they pointed out how imported food from neighboring countries has higher vaccination campaign costs compared to domestic ones which creates challenges especially when dealing with diseases affecting livestock farming like Foot & Mouth Disease Vaccination Campaign.

Finally, they called upon urgent fiscal measures such as reducing export duties aimed at stimulating production thereby boosting economic growth across agriculture sectors
