Romanian cucumber producers will receive compensation of up to 247,200 euro at the estimated loss of 9 million euro by August 1, Romanian Agriculture Minister Valeriu Tabara said. The financial aid will represent 4.6% of the value of commercialized production of last year but not more than a third of the spending made in the period that losses are estimated.

The maximum financial aid will be 247,200 euro compared to an estimated loss of 9 million euro. Romania’s Agriculture ministry announced that it will request the EC to seek solutions to compensate producers.
