The objective of this aid is to recover the productive potential of 4,390 hectares of almonds affected by the drought during the hydrological year of 2014, which endangered the survival of this crop in the dry land of the Region.

The aid is based on a fixed amount per tree replaced, for the acquisition of an official nursery graft plant, preparatory and planting work.

The plots subject to replanting should be rainfed, with almonds affected by drought, which was verified by the staff of the Ministry.

The farmer undertakes to maintain the farm at an appropriate level of cultivation, for five years, under the original plantation framework.
