France 3/Scoop, Jul 26

18 communes of the Hérault have been recognised as having an "agricultural calamity", following the freezing of 19 to 22 April 2017, in particular in the vineyards. The filing of the claim forms must be made before August 16, 2018.

The 18 recognised communes are:

Aigne, Beziers, Capestang, Cazedarnes, Colombiers, Maraussan, Mons, Montoulieu, Olonzac, Poilhes, Puilacher, Forty, Saint-Jean-de-la-Blaquiere, Saint-Jean-de-Minervois, Saint-Pargoire, Saint-Pons- de-Mauchiens, Usclas-d'Herault.

In order to benefit from compensation, the farmers concerned may submit an application to the Departmental Director. Small-holdings, farmers and winegrowers will no doubt be very relieved.
