Porto Novo, Nov 9 (Inforpress) – Movement for Democracy (MpD) MPs found during a visit last weekend to Porto Novo that rainfed agricultural production in the municipality is “null”, because of the plague, especially thearmyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda).
“The production of rainfed is null because of the armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) pest, which completely decimated the maize crop”, informed Sunday, 8th, the parliamentarians of the ruling party, after a meeting with the delegate of the Ministry of Agriculture Joel Barros, and a visit to rural communities.
On the other hand, “there is a considerable increase in the flow of groundwater” and there is availability of “a lot of pasture” for cattle, said MP Damião Medina.
On the other hand, the MPs registered “with pleasure the good progress of the works on the three roads” in the municipality, in an investment of “more than 500 million escudos” for the oppening of “valleys and localities with great potential” in terms of agriculture, livestock, fishing and tourism. These works, they said, are currently promoting more than 200 jobs.
