Rice producers fear unemployment next year

Rice producers from Alcácer do Sal, south of Lisbon, have said they are worried they won’t be able to grow anything next year if the current state of drought continues.

This year, the sown area was already cut by between 20 to 30%. Rice producers fear they may be unemployed next year since the quantity of stored water in two dams in the region that supply the producers’ crops may be not enough to face future needs. The amount of water stored in the dams has been declining for three consecutive years.
