Launch of 2016/17 agricultural campaign in Mopeia District

Mozambique - 28/10/2016

FAO Mozambique attended to the ceremony, which included the planting of trees, visits to the vegetable production fields and pulses, the inauguration of Limane irrigation of about 110 hectares, an agricultural and gastronomic fair and delivery of prizes to the best producers in the 2015/16 campaign. On the evaluation of the 2015/2016campaign, the President said that "the results of global production were encouraging, despite the situation of drought and floods." However, the challenge for this campaign "is to overcome the predictions of 2016/2017 of around 420,000 tons reducing the deficit to 89 000 tons to be overcome in the next two years," said the president.
