The French Farmers' Confederation has voiced concerns about possible solutions to the crisis in the country's wine industry. La Tribune reported today.

The paper said farmers were particularly worried by proposals to allow irrigation of vines. The confederation said that such a measure would increase yields and exacerbate over-production.

There is also a risk that wine-growers will relocate in order to move closer to water sources and reduce production costs.

The possible use of woodchips in wine to increase flavour has also been singled out. The confederation believes this may lead to the greater use of flavourings in wine.
