Porto Novo/Grogue: Farmers suggest adapting legislation to the reality of each region in the name of quality

Porto Novo, Jan 27 (Inforpress) – The farmers’ associations of Ribeira da Cruz and Tarrafal de Monte Trigo, Porto Novo, Santo Antão, today suggested the need to adapt the 2015 grogue law to the “reality of each region ”.

The two farmers’ associations propose that the legislation on grogue be adapted to each region, especially with regard to the beginning of the sugar cane harvest and the production of grogue, which begins in Cape Verde on January 1, extending until May.

In the case of Porto Novo, Vanderley Rocha, spokesperson for the farmers of Ribeira da Cruz and Tarrafal de Monte Trigo, explained to Inforpress that the class wants the harvest to start in December, when sugar cane has already reached the “phase of maturation”.

The regions are different, the climate is different and, in the case of the municipality of Porto Novo, it is desirable that the harvest be brought forward to the first day of December as of 2023, said this grogue producer.
