Rice harvest on the Costa Blanca: In the cultivation area in Pego’s wetland Marjal, the fields have become bare again. This year’s harvest balance is rather bleak, but there is hope for improvement.
Also for the farmers from Pego in the hinterland of the Costa Blanca* It wasn’t a good year. The rice, which is grown in a wetland between the sea and the mountains, had to struggle with an unusually large number of weeds, so the harvest, which was carried out in mid-September, was correspondingly meager. Despite the crop losses, the rice farmers from Pego are optimistic*, knows costanachrichten.com. *
The reason: the restaurants are full again, paella and other rice dishes are more in demand than ever. This, the farmers hope, should have an impact on the price of the grain. Because that had slipped into the cellar last year. *costanews.com is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
