If flashes of the African plague of pigs, farmers may face restrictions on harvest. This was confirmed by the Federal Ministry of agriculture. As experience shows, sown with rapeseed and corn fields attract wild boars. During the harvest the animals are deprived of natural shelter and actively migrate to other areas. This increases the risk of spreading the virus of swine fever.
In our amendments we are talking about the fence of the quarantine areas, fences, intensify the search of dead animals, the involvement of "third parties" the hunters monitoring forest land and "in exceptional cases" to seasonal hunting. Experts believe that it makes sense. They refer to the epidemic case in the Czech Republic, where there was a fenced area around the flash and destroyed the entire population of wild boars within it.
As the spread of swine fever a key role might play the human factor, the government is planning to conduct multilingual outreach campaign. On the Internet, on flyers and posters that are installed at gas stations and in places of recreation, there will be information about the dangers of food residues which may contain ASF infected pork products.
Amendments to the law have already sparked a debate among farmers and environmentalists. Last call to limit the shooting of pregnant sows. Farmers the question of compensation of losses in the event of a ban on the harvest.
