Malta Farmers Experience Sudden Reduction In Water For Irrigation


Farmers with fields in the south of the island have complained about a sudden reduction in water for irrigation, which they say is the result of concurrent work on two reservoirs. Over 200 full-time and many other part-time farmers have invested thousands of euros in new crops but are now risking losing the investment due to serious drop in water supply leaving many fields bone dry, right before the hot summer season.
