Omar Bermudez Sanchez, director of the Eladio Machin Agroindustrial Coffee Enterprise, explained to the press that the goal is to collect around a thousand cans of Robusta bean in that area.

He pointed out that in the agricultural site itself they have planted 48 hectares of this crop, which are being developed, and the plan is to progressively reach 132 hectares.

The dirctive specified that they intend to extend the initiative to all the municipalities and, although it has not yet been possible because only 72 hectares have been planted since 2019 until now, they are working hard in the selection of producers.

Conceived by the Delegation of Agriculture in the province, the project of coffee development in the plain began three years ago in El Mango, in lands without exploitation for almost four decades, benefited by the waters of the Paso Bonito water channel.

Similarly, Bermudez Sanchez said, they will face the 2022-2023 nursery campaign in the mountainous region of Guamuhaya, with 2 million seedlings planned and all conditions guaranteed in terms of transportation, fuel and other resources such as sacks.
