MAYABEQUE.— The National Group of Urban, Suburban and Family Agriculture, recognized the efforts of all producers in the country, in particular the way they have largely overcome the climatic difficulties presented throughout the year, demonstrating the will to push ahead and consolidate the objectives proposed by the movement.

The recognition was expressed by Dr. Adolfo Rodríguez Nodals, head of the Group, following tour number 74 of these plots, which concluded in Mayabeque.

He noted that the top five provinces in this regard were Sancti Spíritus, Pinar del Río, Camagüey, Villa Clara and Ciego de Ávila.

Also recognized were Santiago de Cuba, Cienfuegos, Mayabeque and Holguín, with all municipalities obtaining a good rating.

Nodals called on those provinces not included on this list to review the problems identified by specialists, and for locations rated as regular or bad to undergo evaluation to tackle the difficulties encountered.

We are at a complex stage of the year, he explained, during months which require extreme planning, to make the most of orchards, organic urban farms and all the space we have to grow crops. We must pay special attention to the people’s councils and ensure compliance with all the 35 targeted measures, he noted.

More than half of the people’s councils randomly visited across the country received a good rating, 40% were rated as regular and 10% as bad, Nodals said.

In early November tour number 75 will begin in Camagüey province.
