More than 70 farmers from Santiago will benefit from training under the “sow, harvest and sell” project

Praia, Sep 20 (Inforpress) – More than 70 farmers in Santiago will benefit from training under the “sow, harvest, sell” project resulting from cooperation between the Association for Rural Development and Promotion (ASDEPR) from Azores and ACAISA of Santiago.

Speaking to Inforpress, the president of the Commercial, Agricultural, Industrial and Services Association of Santiago (ACAISA), Felisberto Veiga, said it was a project designed since 2018 by the associations from the two regions, with the objective of promoting an agriculture as a source of income in Santiago, Cabo Verde’s largest agricultural island.

In this first phase, the project, which is funded by the European Union, covers mainly the training, exchange of experience and exchanges between farmers in the two regions, as well as the promotion of business cooperation.

“The training is mainly in areas related to agricultural production. Therefore, greenhouse cultivation, pasture production, plant protection procedures, dairy cattle production and cooperativism. Therefore, these are areas where we have some need and the Azores Island has a very advanced experience,” he said.
