Farmers already keeping 10 million tons of soy in sacks - Casamiquela

Agriculture Minister Carlos Casamiquela questioned the farmers'' strike that was announced for March 11-13.

Agriculture Minister Carlos Casamiquela considered the strike launched by the Liaison Board “will not affect much” the economy, explaining the sector was already keeping products outside the market. “They have 10 million tons of soy in silo sacks,” the official warned.

“Announcing a trade walkout is contradictory if they were not trading already. They have 10 million tons of soy kept in silo sacks. So, whether they strike or not, it will not change that much the economic situation,” Casamiquela told reporters.

In media statements today, the minister questioned the protest action that was announced by an anti-government sector of famers – the so called “Liaison Board” bringing together the country’s top farming lobbies -, for March 11, 12 and 13.

“One can discuss a lot of things and I have the criteria for that and, in fact, I maintain dialogue with the organizations’ leaders; but we have to be careful about the way we see things,” Casamiquela warned.

“If I join the strike because everything is going down, (because) this is a disaster and a Kirchnerite terror, how do I justify that again I have a production record in Argentina. We again have 58 million tons of soy,” he insisted adding the federal government was addressing some “complex situations” in the sector “intensely,” such as the case of regional economies depending on exports.
