Head of the Lebanese Farmers Association Antoine Howayek underlined on Tuesday during an interview with Nharkom Said TV show on LBCI that a major disaster will shape up after the Saudi decision to stop Lebanese imports.

Regarding the citrus season, he stressed that “it is an essential season as a large part of the production is mainly devoted to export, the reason why preventing Lebanese imports will lead to a catastrophe at this level, furthermore to a decline in prices and a depression.”
 
“There are no new markets for agricultural production, especially for citrus, so quantities will be put in the Lebanese markets, and prices will collapse accordingly,” Howayek pointed out.
