It’s because of a shortage of migrant workers, transport issues and production problems. 

One farmer near Winterthur has say he’s going to need to find 70 additional workers. 

Heinz Schibli has spoken to the local authorities about taking on asylum seekers or local unemployed people.

His crops at least are destined for the Swiss market so won’t suffer from cross-border European transport issues.
