Tekax, Yucatán, (January 3, 2022) .- More than 100 producers in the municipality of Tekax received the support of the Yucatan Government, with the delivery of high quality and certified sorghum seed, suitable for this season and with which they will be able to sow more than 400 hectares of this cereal, to benefit the economy of the Yucatecan producers.

Tekax is located 126 kilometers (82 miles) south of Merida (INEGI)

The head of the Rural Development Secretariat (Seder), Jorge Díaz Loeza, granted these grains, ideal for sowing during these dates, since, due to the humidity that the fields in the area still maintain, the crop will develop favorably.

Regarding this support for producers, the mayor of Tekax, Diego Ávila Romero, recognized the important economic effort of the state administration, to support the families that depend on the sector.

For his part, Secretary Díaz Loeza said that these benefits “continue to reach those who need it the most and, once again, we make it possible, thanks to the Governor’s commitment to Yucatecan families.”

The president of the Council of the Union of Ejidos, Leonel Serrano Ramírez, indicated that the families are very grateful for the support of the state government since Vila Dosal himself and the secretary Díaz Loeza have been very aware of the people’s agricultural needs in that region.

Likewise, he estimated that, with the sorghum received, it will be possible to obtain about 800 tons of harvest in a few months, the product of which is sold to companies that are dedicated to the manufacture of food, thereby benefiting the economy of farmers.

Also, in compliance with Vila Dosal’s commitments with this sector, Díaz Loeza and Ávila Romero granted a grain mill to women from the San Martín Hilil ejido, a team that replaces an old one, with which they will be able to increase their production. This rural community is inhabited by 26 families, who depend on agriculture.
