The producer of sesame said they had a very unfortunate year, as they were harmed in every way both in monetary, agricultural and especially by lack of water. «The temporary companies depend on the rains to develop the crops and because today we lacked a lot of water, the time was not how we expected it and the drought that presented itself also brought with it problems of different types, since we had pests in the plants and that ended up to finish us off,» he said. The Mocoritense producer wants the government to look back at the sector that suffered in the face of this bad year, since some did not raise even 100 kilos per hectare as in previous cycles, which is why they see the future very ugly.
