ANGOP has learnt that part of the maize to be harvested will be processed into animal feed while the surplus will be marketed to livestock and poultry farmers.

On an interview to ANGOP, the director of the project, Eliseu Sambongo, informed that his farm  intends to produce, in an experimental manner, beans and soya.

The Cristalina farm, also located in the municipality of Cacuso, expects to harvest, in March 2018, in an area of 700 hectares, eight tonnes of corn.

On the other hand, the difficulty to obtain bank credit, lack of foreign exchange for the import of certain raw materials, problems in power supply and the poor state of the roads, were pointed out by all farmers as the main constraints faced by the project.

The municipality of Cacuso has a great agricultural potential.
