Portugal’s agricultural sector dominated by powerful agro-chemical interest groups

According to the latest information on Portugal’s drought, issued by the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere, at the end of August the situation remained dire with 58.9% of the territory in severe drought, 37.8% in moderate drought, 2.6% in weak drought and 0, 7% in extreme drought.

There is no rain forecast for September, which, while tourist businesses might be rejoicing, leaves agriculture facing severe difficulties.
