More resistant grape varieties

Béziers.Three resistant grape varieties were planted in Pech de Fonserane on approximately 30 hectares, three varieties all resulting from natural, non-GMO crosses. Each requested a work program lasting around fifteen years for an investment of 500,000 to 1 million euros. The goal is to take the iconic variety and make it resistant, particularly to certain diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew. Merlot Khorus, Soreli and Sauvignon Rytos will thus be the subject of a life-size wine experience. L’Occitane winegrowers also planted Aramon to study its resistance to drought. The first harvest is expected in three years.

Elected officials want a director for the hospital

Millau.The mayors of the Millau Grands Causses community of communes alerted the Minister of Health to the vacancy of the management position of the Millau and Saint-Affrique hospitals.

A recruitment procedure for stable management had been launched and the person selected ultimately withdrew. During a second procedure, only Benoît Durand was a candidate. He went through all the stages before finally not being accepted. "However, it does the job, people say in the corridors. He could come with a whole team to the management and start a long job but he cannot as long as he takes over the position on an interim basis." "Maintain Mr. Benoît Durand in a unjustified interim work undermines the proper functioning of the two structures and further weakens the proper monitoring of the future hospital project, thus giving an argument to its detractors", underlines the mayor of Millau, Emmanuelle Gazel and the elected co-signatories.
