PESOE 2024: Agriculture Could Produce More Than 3 Million Tonnes of Grain

The figures contained in the 2024 Economic and Social Plan and State Budget (PESOE), approved last year by Parliament, indicate that the agricultural sector could produce more than 3 million tonnes of cereals and 600,000 tonnes of pulses.

The projections also foresee large-scale production of oilseeds, vegetables, roots, tubers and almonds, and within the framework of access to technical assistance and rural extension services, the country expects to hire 455 extension workers to assist 1.2 million families.

“We expect to liberalise 15 varieties of crops with high nutritional value, productivity and resilience to climate change. The aim is to produce 50 tonnes of basic seed and certify 15,000 tonnes,” explains the document.

However, in order for the activities to be successful, the Executive has delegated to the Instituto de Cereais de Moçambique “the mission of guaranteeing the general coordination of the commercialisation process, ensuring the creation of a physical food reserve and creating and promoting storage conditions for cereals and pulses in rural areas”.

“It must also promote partnerships and synergies for the disposal of agricultural surpluses and collaborate in coordinating the placement of cereals, legumes and other products on the national and international markets, thus contributing to price stabilisation,” it concludes.
