Although it is necessary to occupy most land extension possible, it is also indispensable to do it efficiently, making the most out of their performance and incorporating new crops.
With such purpose 2010-2011 winter campaign started in Cienfuegos, a campaign that will guarantee 49% of next year production. During the spring campaign 22 000 hectares were harvested, over 6 600 than in the same period the previous year. According to statements from Lien Fajardo, sub delegate of agriculture in the province, “… we reached 134% of efficiency in potato crops, 155% in vegetables, 191% in grains and nine times the expected amount of fruits”.
The aim is to beginning the sowing processes early in order to complement these results. “All entities must accelerate the soil preparation. We must increase the use of bio fertilizers and save the chemicals we have. It is also a goal to intersperse the crops and to aim at surpassing the initially contracted amounts”, stressed the sub delegate in the territory.
Among the coming prioritized projects is the sowing of beans, which will reach 167 tons by December within the program for substituting imports. Surpassing the harvests of these products and achieving a better distribution will be distinctive features of Cienfuegos´ farmers.
