Following a series of meetings held in different provinces across the country, the Argentine Agrarian Federation (FAA) released a statement criticising the government's agrarian policies and questioning what farmers called the “concentration policy" implemented by the Kirchnerism for over a decade.

The document specified local issues, province by province, but it also highlighted some points as the “most worrying” matters: “The increase of production costs, the high export retention taxes charged equally to all farmers despite the different scales of production, the lack of assistance from the authorities in weather emergencies, the policy that has impacted negatively in wheat, milk and meat production,” among others.

The assemblies were held in Buenos Aires, La Pampa and Chaco provinces and were scheduled to continue on Saturday in order to cover the entire country.
