Casablanca – Settat: 43,000 hectares of vegetables to be grown

The autumn cultivation program covers an area of around 17,000 hectares, and includes potatoes, onions, tomatoes, carrots, squash, beans and cauliflower, according to the Directorate, adding that this program will be followed by other winter, spring and summer cultivation programs. 

The aim of this operation is to ensure uninterrupted supplies to markets throughout the year and to maintain price stability, explained the Management, stressing that this initiative is part of the program to mitigate the effects of the rainfall deficit and the international situation on agricultural activity in the Casablanca-Settat region.     As in the previous year, 
the government had put in place emergency measures as part of the program to combat the effects of drought during the current year. 
This expansion in vegetable production testifies to Morocco’s ongoing commitment to agricultural development and food security. It also strengthens the Casablanca-Settat region’s position as one of the country’s major agricultural hubs, contributing to the supply of fresh, high-quality produce for local and national markets.
