Madagascar: The Department of Agriculture wants to triple the production of rice in the Island




The Malagasy Ministry of Agriculture wants to triple the production of rice in the Island for the 2015 harvest.
 
Thus the authorities will import new hybrid seeds from China with a productivity of 10 tons per hectare to reach the objective.
 
The rice sector in Madagascar drained in its wake some 4.3 million tons of rice in 2014 after a particularly challenging 2013 harvest. The harvest year 2014 was notably better because of locust control conducted in the Island against migratory locusts.
