Boujdour: Farmers benefit from 15,000 quintals of subsidised barley

Boujdour farmers have benefited from the distribution of several quintals of subsidized barley.
The Regional Directorate of Agriculture (DRA) of Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra has distributed some 15,000 quintals of subsidized barley for the benefit of farmers in areas of Boujdour province affected by the rainfall deficit.

This initiative is part of the implementation of the specific programme to support livestock feeding launched by the Ministry of Agriculture, Maritime Fisheries, Rural Development and Water and Forestry. The operation is spread over three months (April-May-June), underlines a press release from the DRA of Laâyoune-Sakia El Hamra, specifying that it is a question of providing barley to livestock farmers at a fixed price of 200 dirhams per quintal (2 dirhams per kg).

In accordance with the preventive measures against the new coronavirus (Covid-19), there was thus the appointment of representatives of the farmers of Boujdour to obtain the share of each farmer in order to avoid overcrowding at the relay centre. Thus, this operation comes in addition to the efforts made by the DRA of Laâyoune-Sakia El Hamra, which has already launched a programme to safeguard livestock by subsidizing animal feed.

The first phase of this program, which is part of the implementation of the Green Morocco Plan (PVM) at the regional level, resulted in the distribution of 11,250 quintals of feed for the benefit of farmers in the province of Boujdour.
