The head of the Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (MIDAGRI) stated that with the first batches, priority will be given to producers who have agricultural units smaller than five hectares, that involve the main crops of the 2022-2023 agricultural campaign and that are related to feeding the population.

On the other hand, Alencastre spoke about the guidelines for his work with MIDAGRI and indicated that it seeks to structure management with a territorial approach.

“This supposes an intergovernmental articulation and a bottom-up relationship, where the protagonists are the territorially located producer organizations themselves, and that will be the agenda from now on,” said the minister.
