The province’s failures in the spring campaign show that there is no progress from one stage to another, so it is urgent to improve the programs to ensure food sovereignty and municipal self-sufficiency, he noted.

Therefore, it is urgent to strengthen the production units and concentrate resources on them to take advantage of the existing machinery and technology, in order to increase agricultural yields, without renouncing the practice of organic farming.

The vice president insisted on recovering the delays in cold planting, in which some 29,246 hectares should be sowed, 1,815 of which have been planted so far in September, which shows a delay due to scarce rainfalls and fuel deficits, among other factors.

‘The campaign extends until February 2022 and is the largest we have, providing about 70 percent of the productions in a year,’ he highlighted.

Valdes Mesa also noted the importance of better explaining and advancing in the implementation of 63 measures approved for the development of the sector, since what is obtained must meet the demands from social consumption, the population, the industry, tourism and exports.
