The owner of the sector expressed the need to create collection points in the cooperatives and avoid the diversion of production.

Likewise, Rodríguez Rollero confirmed the development of the project «Polo Productivo del Norte de Matanzas» in the Roque-Camarones hydraulic complex and its impact on rice production.

Precisely with the plan, water would be saved in an area where 127 million cubic meters of the precious liquid that flows towards the sea is lost annually.

In addition, Gustavo Rodríguez visited the Basic Unit of Cooperative Production (UBPC) Ceiba Mocha, where he exhorted to increase production and learned about the experience in that site of the conversion of an old school in the countryside in an agricultural community.

Also, the Minister of Agriculture exchanged with leading producers in the municipality of Perico and evaluated the preparation of the 184 hectares of land that will be dedicated to the planting of potatoes in the UBPC La Angelina of that territory.

The official toured the Credit and Services Cooperatives José Martí and Mario Muñoz, as well as the Agricultural Enterprises Máximo Gómez and Vladimir Ilich Lenin.

Likewise, he valued the progress of the cold season and the sowing plans, despite the recent rains that affect agricultural activity.

The minister recalled that the Cuban government allocates millions of pesos to the development of agriculture between the import of seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and fuel, which is why being efficient and meeting the productive indicators is paramount.
