Head of the federation of farmers’ associations from Slavonija Antun Laslo, said farmers made the decision after a meeting between the Minister of Agriculture Tihomir Jakovina and members fo the Croatian Chamber of Agriculture reached a stalemate. Farmers are not happy in Croatia with the current level of support from the government, saying the budget for the farming sector had been dramatically cut, despite a promise earlier from the Minister that the regions farmers would not be forgotten. Meetings are set to continue on Monday 12 August.
