For the socialist mayor Enrique Fuentes, the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia has been giving "blind sticks" regarding the agricultural burning of the pruning remains, since the regional administration has not been able to give answers to the farmers in reference what they have to do with the plant remains resulting from their agricultural pruning. Sources reported yesterday in an appearance before the media that neither the law of October 19, 2017 on phytosanitary measures, nor the law of May 25, 2020, is extended by the law of June 15 and September 29, The latter adapted to the current measures of the state of alarm, responding to farmers in the Region of Murcia, Caravaca de la Cruz and the districts, since it is not established what should or has to be done with the resulting plant remains of agricultural pruning. The socialist councilor reported that farmers find themselves with a power vacuum on this issue, without knowing what to do with the plant remains resulting from pruning, while there is no public system that can perform this work. "Given so much uncertainty and legal insecurity on the issue of burning of plant remains resulting from pruning, given the ineffectiveness of the orders given from the Ministry of Agriculture, from the Municipal Socialist Group we have presented a motion to the plenary session in November to urge the Governing Council of the Region of Murcia to immediately draw up, based on current legislation, a Draft Law for the Management of Agricultural Waste in the Region of Murcia to end the situation of uncertainty and legal helplessness of many of our farmers / as in the management of pruning remains so that they can develop their activity with total freedom ", Enrique Fuentes concluded.
