Farmers had tasted, and the prices of cherries and other apricots had soared.

The episode of late frosts last April, affecting 98 communes in the Bouches-du-Rhône, had led to heavy losses among farmers.

Different types of aid and support for the sector, via the activation of the so-called “agricultural calamity” regime, were announced by the government in the process.

In the Bouches-du-Rhône, just over 23 million euros in aid have already been distributed, the prefecture announced on Wednesday.

In detail, an envelope of 16 million euros was distributed among 135 fruit farms.

Also, 4 million euros of exceptional exemption from social security contributions have been granted to nearly 650 companies.

Finally, a reduction in the tax on unbuilt land has also been implemented.
