Some farmers in São Domingos are without water for irrigation and are asking for electric pump repairs

Cidade da Praia, Jan 3 (Inforpress)- Some farmers in the locality of Nora, in the municipality of São Domingos, are without agricultural work due to the lack of water, a problem that has existed for more than five months, according to the spokesman for the farmers’ group.

Speaking to inforpress, Sérgio Augusto Monteiro Roque explained that the problem is due to a malfunction in the electric pump that allows the distribution of water.

The device, according to the same source, has been in the hands of the National Institute of Agricultural Research and Development (INIDA) to be repaired for more than five months.

“These are farmers who depend on growing crops to support their families, so they’re facing a very difficult situation. The engine breaks down from time to time, it doesn’t produce much water, but normally the engine is removed and replaced within 30 days, but now they’ve been waiting for five months,” said the farmer.
