A report on the damage to agriculture is to be submitted to the Agriculture Ministry tomorrow.

The Chamber's head Roman Žveglič today said the situation is worse than in 2017, when damage was estimated at EUR 65 million and added that virtually all crops are affected.

This will create problems for livestock farmers because fodder will be scarce and expensive.

The prices of grain on the global markets have gone up, the price of corn for example increased from EUR 250 a tonne last year to EUR 400 this year.
