Havana.- The eastern province of Santiago de Cuba is developing the Agrofrutales project, aimed at promoting fruit crops.
The initiative is carried out in an area of 1,100 hectares around agri-industrial sites.
This option responds to an alliance between the Cuban Ministry of Agriculture and the Government of Canada, with support from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
Until March 2022, the agri-food production chains of mango, guava and papaya will be developed, with a budget of 4.8 million dollars.
About 308 hectares will be planted with citrus fruits, together with mango, guava, papaya, pineapple, coconut and avocado, with the possibility of extending those areas.
