Peasant families harvest over 1,000 tons of vegetables

Malanje – An overall 1,209 tons of vegetables have been harvested by peasant families in northern Malanje, from September to November under the vegetable production subproject of MOSAP II.

 

The products harvested were 514 tons of tomatoes, 597 tons of cabbage, 60 tons of eggplant and 38 tons of onion.

The Production for the 2019/2020 agricultural campaign involved 3,683 families of 50 farmers' associations in 12 municipalities of the province.

The MOSAP project made available 29.3 million kwanzas for the acquisition of seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides, along with 252 small irrigation pumps, among other production tools.

The harvested product was essentially sold to the formal and informal markets of Malanje, which until then had only consumed vegetables from the south of the country.

The Mosap's goal is to increase the production of vegetables during the present agricultural year, to boost the process of crop diversification and income generation for families.

For the present agricultural year, the MOSAP II project has made available 400,516 million kwanzas to support 7,000 peasant families in Malanje province.

The MOSAP II project replaces MOSAP I, created with the aim to improve food security and reduce poverty in rural areas.

The project currently controls 622 rural schools, where more than 24,000 families are located. Besides Malanje, it is also being implemented in Huambo and Bié provinces.
