Soya and rice producers to get improved seeds (Angola)

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development in Angola, Afonso Pedro Canga, recently confirmed that rice and soya producers will have access to improved seeds, sourced from Brazil and Japan, in a bid to increase production and eventually steer the country into self-sufficiency in these crops.

The minister said that continuous efforts are being made so that the country can have enough seeds to meet the demand of producers. He added that the Agronomic Research Institute is already testing some variants in Chianga, 12km from Huambo City, which will be handed over to producers. – Angolan Press
