Ecuador: Ministry of Agriculture began the delivery of seeds, inputs and subsidized fertilizers

On Friday, the Ecuadorian Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock started the Seed Project, which with a budget of $14 million includes the subsidy of certified seeds, phytosanitary supplies and fertilizers for producers of bananas, rice, corn, potatoes, coffee, cocoa, banana, beans, pepper, tree tomato, avocado and other fruits.

The plan will benefit more than 20,000 small and medium-sized producers, during the 2022 summer cycle, said the Minister of Agriculture and Livestock, Bernardo Manzano, who explained that producers must be registered on the MAG platform, through the district offices of each province.

“If the farmer is registered and meets the requirements, the co-payment is made (the beneficiary will only pay between 30 and 50% of the commercial value) and the package is immediately delivered,” he explained.
