Belgian farmers hit by low prices

LIKE their counterparts in the UK, Belgian farmers are suffering low prices, reports the Financial Times in a special supplement on Belgium.

The article reports low commodity prices across all sectors of Belgian farming, including pigs, beef and cereals.

Belgian farmers are pushing for full compensation for any price cuts agreed during the Agenda 2000 reform of the Common Agricultural policy.
