Las Tunas, Cuba.- The executive said that the construction of the silos also began, which will respond to the capacity of the factory, designed to process 60 tons daily, basically maize and beans. Pérez López stressed that the biggest challenge of the entity, with a view to respond to the demands of the investment, is to triple production for its full utilization.
He also said that the work will have the added value of closing the production cycle, humanizing the work of the farmers during the harvest and guaranteeing better protection and consumer satisfaction with packaged, clean and different weighed goods.
The delegate of Agriculture added that in the area of Camagüeycito two silos are been installed for the conservation of rice, each one with a capacity of one thousand tons. They will support ongoing investments to benefit the production of this cereal in the territory.
He said that in that place a dryer already works and later a mill will be installed to link the agriculture with preindustrial and industrial cycle. This will avoid expenditure of fuel and other resources while being independent of the rice milling, which is currently carried out in the neighboring province of Granma.
Other recent investments correspond to the location of 500 irrigation systems, already linked up, and work is carried out on the installation of 200 more; this will allow to double the total of irrigated land in Las Tunas, which currently only amounts to 4,500 hectares.
The investment program also includes a mini-industry in the municipality of Jobabo to process about 30 tons of vegetables, as well as the expansion of the José Mastrapa farm to produce seven million eggs above its current capacity.
