People who suffered from the Hybrid Corn Seed Program, having previously demanded the repayment of their loans by the previous government, are now making the same demand to the new administration. The talk is of loans taken out under the previous government for the purchase of seed. The head of the union of people affected by this issue has explained to TV3 that the selling of their produce was conducted at such a low price that they could not repay their loans in full, and found themselves on the list of debtors. At the same time, he reckons that the produce was in reality sold at a far higher price than has been officially announced. A spokesman for the Ministry of Agriculture has described these allegations as absurd, and stated that problems have only been experienced by those farmers who did not keep up with timely repayments of the loans. The spokesman adds that the State has already helped the affected farmers by extending the deadline for the loans to be repaid by until November this year.
