Cabo Delgado Anticipates Agricultural Growth of More Than 1 Million Tonnes

In an optimistic preview of the next agricultural season, Cabo Delgado, in northern Mozambique, is predicting significant growth in its production. Nocif Magaia, the provincial director of Industry and Commerce, recently announced that there are expectations of marketing more than 1.3 million tonnes of agricultural products, as reported by Rádio Moçambique.

“This figure will represent a 5% increase on the previous campaign,” said Magaia, noting that everything is ready, although there are still concerns about the rains that continue to fall in the centre and south of Cabo Delgado and the displacement of residents by terrorism.

The increase in the supply of these products – which includes cereals, pulses, roots, tubers, cashew nuts and cotton – has the potential to trigger a drop in food prices in the province, offering relief to local consumers. At the same time, an injection of dynamism into the regional economy is expected, with revenues projected to exceed 8 billion meticals.

The campaign launch ceremony will take place in the city of Pemba and will be presided over by provincial governor Valige Tauabo.
