Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb announced Monday a decision that would block companies from importing certain produce without prior approval, in an apparent response to demands by local farmers struggling to sell their products.The NNA said the farmers briefly cut off the highway from Jbeil toward Beirut and dumped their apples on the street.Five million boxes will be wasted because they are not going to be sold," state media quoted Wehbi as saying.The farmers later opened the highway after receiving assurances that they would meet with Prime Minister Tammam Salam and Chehayeb, according to Voice of Lebanon radio (100.5).
