When being young and horticulturists is an option
The Chubut Development Corporation is working on the closure of the project of young horticulturists in Sarmiento. Within the framework of the Inclusive Rural Development Program, authorities of CORFO and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Nation visited the city.
First it is met with members of producer groups, and then paid a visit to each field. The idea was to evaluate the construction of greenhouses and advances of the project. At each establishment, details were given on which were the construction work and commissioning of production. Angle the greenhouses contributed by the program, the results were announced of tomato and lettuce production as pioneering crops. In addition, the worked other crops such as cucumber, peppers, beets and leafy vegetables such as verdeos, basil and arugula.
The association group “Horticultores de Sarmiento” was created in the Valley of that locality with the support of CORFO Southern Delegation technician. Composed of six young producers, the project achieved great results. With funding of $650,000, they were able to install 130 m2 greenhouses equipped with water tanks, irrigation pumps and drip tapes.
It should be noted that the project set out two clear objectives in the Sarmiento Valley. On the one hand, keep young people inserted in the agricultural sector with profitable and competitive activities. On the other hand, supply Sarmiento with quality products and access new markets such as Comodoro Rivadavia. For this purpose, the construction of 6 firm greenhouses was carried out, for the development of intensive horticultural production under cover.
In the construction of the structures, the largest participation was the producers beneficiaries. However, they also had accompaniment for the armed forces. CORFO Southern Delegation technicians, Chacra 40 staff and INTA technicians Sarmiento, participated in the implementation of this project.
