Irrigation will be permitted in France?

>> Wednesday, March 02, 2005

There is currently a proposal on the table, likely to be accepted, to allow irrigation, but under strict conditions. The background is the extremely hot and dry summer 2003 where many vineyards suffered great damage from the heat and lack of water.
