In statements to Prensa Latina, Alonso explained that this result only includes two products, the fertilizer ammonium nitrate and the herbicide Glufosinate ammonium, both of great value for the agricultural sector.

According to Alonso, one of GEIQ’s strategies is to promote production for the agri-food area and this is one of the pillars of the Business Round that the institution is developing until May 13.

Exchanges that will make it possible to expand the use of the capacities of the industry, some of them resulting from recent investment processes, the vice-president said.

This space, she said, will allow to show the existing potentialities in GEIQ and the presentation of new products under national development.

Some of them are herbicides that could be used on sugar cane, rice, beans, tomatoes, garlic, vegetables, and other insecticides for tobacco, corn, and potatoes, she said.
