Government will compensate 600 farmers affected by collapse of Las Mercedes canal

The Minister of Agriculture, Antonio Walker, announced a compensation bonus for at least 600 farmers in the communes of Curacaví and María Pinto. These areas were affected by the collapse of one of the tunnels of the Las Mercedes canal, which resulted in the interruption of the normal flow of water in at least 16,000 hectares of crops. The bond will depend on the size of the affected land.
