YOUNG farmers are the latest group of people to show their concern at the reduction in the production of lemons in the Alicante province.

A spokesperson for the association (ASAJA) said that the region that regularly produces some 40 per cent of the lemons throughout Spain has registered a 30 per cent drop, and all due to the ongoing drought conditions.

A consequence is that the usual size and quality of the produce that is demanded by markets across Europe is suffering and this a lack of profits for the local farmers.
