The Chimborazo Prefecture, through the Directorate of Social Management and Productive Development, carries out technical support for the potato cultivation process, to the inhabitants of the Cachaton San Francisco community, belonging to the Cacha parish.
Danny Huilcapi, agronomist for the Productive Development Directorate, expressed the work that has been carried out from the social and productive sphere with the delivery of seeds, fertilizers and technical assistance. “We are providing farmers with quality seeds, fertilizers and technical support for their performance,” he said.
Many of the farmers are sowing empirically, that is why we have come to give them a technical explanation about the soil and the plant, with the aim that they invest less, but their production is more, that is, we achieve less investment costs and more profitability to be able to have better economic returns ”, explained Huilcapi.
Segundo Hito, beneficiary, expressed the importance of the support provided from this provincial institution. “We need them to advise us and provide us with technical assistance to have better production, before we have not been able to have a good potato harvest, we want them to help us this time through their work team,” he mentioned.
The commitment of the Prefecture of Chimborazo is, through the Directorate of Social Management, to deliver seeds and fertilizers to the parishes of the province of Chimborazo and through Fomento Productivo, with agricultural technicians in the consultancy with a demonstration plot so that they can replicate in their neighboring communities.
