▪ Green crosses ▪
All over Germany you will find green crosses in the fields. What is that supposed to mean?
On 4 September 2019, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, together with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, passed a so-called agricultural package.
Since then, there has been a fear on many farms that it makes all production in the field and in the barn more difficult and, in some cases, almost impossible. The measures are massively affecting the property values of us farmers. Individual areas become worthless and can no longer be used for food production. The result: food is imported from abroad, regardless of how it is produced there. That can not be in the consumer’s interest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The numerous prohibitions cause yields to fall. The supply of the local population with regional products is endangered. This also contradicts the desire of the consumer. Increasingly, farmers are trying to counter this development by restricting their current mode of production by switching to organic agriculture. As a result of increasing oversupply, this market is also generating enormous price pressure in this market. A group of committed farmers would like to draw attention to the now massive onset Höfesterben (especially small and medium-sized family farms) with the establishment of green crosses. We make no demands. The green crosses should be understood as a reminder to society to become aware of the value of domestic agriculture.
