Bad weather: olive growing and wine production in the provinces of Vicenza and Treviso hit hard producing serious difficulties

Question écrite de Mme Mara BIZZOTTO - Commission européenne

Question de Mme Mara BIZZOTTO,

Diffusée le 21 août 2018

Subject: Bad weather: olive growing and wine production in the provinces of Vicenza and Treviso hit hard producing serious difficulties

The many instances of bad weather and very heavy hailstorms in June and July 2018 decimated harvests in the gently sloping piedmont areas of the provinces of Vicenza (municipalities of Pove, Romano d'Ezzelino, Mussolente, Bassano del Grappa and surrounding areas in particular) and Treviso (municipalities of Asolo, Valdobbiadene, Maser, Cornuda, Caerano, Montebelluna, Vidor, Conegliano, Susegana and Santa Lucia in particular).

Crops were seriously damaged by the bad weather. Production of Veneto del Grappa DOP olive oil has been especially hit, with almost half the harvest lost according to initial estimates by the farmers’ association Coldiretti Vicenza. Vineyards producing Prosecco DOC and DOCG in Treviso province have also been hit hard.

In view of the difficult situation in the regions affected, the huge costs and the heavy losses farmers are being forced to bear, will the Commission take action to support and protect Veneto’s olive growers and wine producers – renowned for their outstanding designation of origin products – through special aid for this situation?

Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the European Commission

(3 October 2018)

There is no measure at EU level directly compensating farmers for damages due to climatic conditions. However, Union legislation provides, in the case of National Support Programmes in the wine sector, for the possibility to grant EU support for ‘harvest insurance’ to safeguard producers’ incomes where there are losses because of natural disasters, adverse climatic events, diseases or pest infestations and for setting up ‘mutual funds’ seeking to insure producers against market fluctuations.

The current Italian national support programme includes harvest insurance with the purpose to protect the income of producers affected by adverse climatic events, which can be assimilated to natural disasters.

In its proposal for a reform of the common agricultural policy (CAP) post 2020 which includes establishing CAP Strategic Plans and which is currently discussed by the European Parliament and the Council (1), the Commission included similar sectorial intervention measures in the olive oil sector.

In rural development programmes (2) co-financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, Member States may introduce measures providing for support for risk management including insurance contracts, and mutual funds which can be used in case of adverse climatic events, plant diseases and pests. Additionally, in order to compensate for severe drops in income, Member States may consider making use of the income stabilisation tool.

A Member State can also decide to provide support from its own resources, in accordance with the applicable state aid rules (3) or in line with the de minimis regulation (4).

disaster of the European Union Guidelines for state aid in the agricultural and forestry sectors and in rural areas 2014-2020 (OJ C 204, 1.7.2014, p. 1) and/or in Article 25 Aid to compensate for damage caused by adverse climatic event which can be assimilated to a natural disaster of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 702/2014 of 25 June 2014 declaring certain categories of aid in the agricultural and forestry sectors and in rural areas compatible with the internal market in application of Article 107 and 108 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (OJ L 193, 1.7.2014, p. 1). ⋅4∙ Commission Regulation (EU) No 1408/2013 of 18 December 2013 on the application of Articles 107 and 108 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European

Union to de minimis aid in the agriculture sector (OJ L 352, 24.12.2013, p. 9).
