The peasants of the Advanced Productive Political Movement “Niceto Pérez” in Caibarién are committed to new goals hand in hand with science and technology in search of productive performance
This May 17th marks the 60th anniversary of the creation of the National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP). In Caibarién on that date, but a year ago, the “Niceto Pérez” Advanced Productive Political Movement emerged.
José Alberto Roche Acosta, president of the ANAP of Remedios and Caibarién, refers to the objective of the movement: inserting elite producers who stand out for their productive results, willing to apply science and technology on their farms.
Members of the movement have visited the National Institute of Tropical Viand Research (INIVIT) bringing varieties more resistant to pests and climate change to the field, thus increasing productive yield.
The Advanced Productive Political Movement in Caibarién holds meetings between its members to exchange experiences and the use of the best agroecological variants.
The president of the Defense Council in Villa Blanca, Odelvis Luis Vázquez, present at the meetings, has called on advanced peasants to turn their farms into true schools, applying science and technology and setting an example to other farmers. .
Food production is a primary task for the economic development of the country. In times of pandemic, the forward movement, as its name reflects, must progress even further to contribute to food sovereignty and territorial self-consumption.
