Farmers: Kahlon to postpone agriculture reform

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon will postpone an agricultural reform that includes lowering protective import barriers for a week, according to the Farmer’s Federation.

Following a meeting with the group’s secretary-general, Meir Tzur, Kahlon agreed to allow the farmers to propose an alternative plan.

Knesset Finance Committee chairman MK Eitan Cabel voiced sharp criticism of a farming reform that Kahlon and Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel proposed Tuesday.
