Ulises “Chito” Forte from Piquen was re-elected as director of District 8 of the Argentine Agrarian Federation (FAA), at the annual assembly that took place yesterday in General Pico. At the meeting, new directors and coordinators were elected and a document was drawn up -after an intense debate- in which each delegate from branches, cooperatives, federated women and youth centers expressed the reality of the agrarian sector they represent.
Agricultural leader Ulises “Chito” Forte will replace Ariel Toselli. While the president of the Embajador Martini subsidiary, Fernando Ramonda, will replace Adolfo Sánchez as alternate director. For her part, Irma Unia (Eduardo Castex) will be the coordinator of Federated Women; Horacio Allochis from Martin will coordinate the charitable entities.
Those elected will take office -on September 22 and 23- at the Annual National Congress of the FAA, in the city of Rosario.
The document prepared consists of seven points that concern the federated producers, who were very harsh in their expressions towards the leading managers, to advance in the claim before whom it corresponds.
Land Law, is a point that District 8 has been claiming before the different government bodies, it became a strong request aiming to provide a solution to the Undivided Condominiums that complicate the deed of properties in succession processes. On this subject, several times claimed, former governor Carlos Verna received in his hands material written by professionals of the entity, and apparently that technical work was housed in some drawer of the Government House, they said.
We will continue strongly demanding the channeling of water excesses -said an assembly member-, referring to the works insistently demanded from the provincial government, understanding that the losses in soil and roads in the rainy cycles are great.
On the other hand, the producers are concerned about the lack of rain and the succession of frosts, which is already causing economic losses in the forage cement factories, which in most cases have dried up completely, having offered little forage when the costs implantation are expensive. And on the agricultural side, very few hectares of winter crops were planted. Knowing that the Pampean Government authorities are perfectly aware of the situation, they are expected to address this problem, they said.
The System of Collection and Control of Bank Collections -SIRCREB- continues to annoy the producers, considering it unconstitutional, since it has become a government measure from which it is very difficult to get out even if you do not have debts, and in addition, what is contributed is not is deducted from payments made.
The poor state of the roads and each time narrower, was also another point of complaint from the bases, who consider the width of the rural roads harm the correct circulation, given the width of the modern machinery.
The concern about the lack of diesel, and its high cost, was not unrelated. If it were not for the halt in the use of machinery caused by the lack of humidity, this fuel would not cover the need to continue working.
A better attention from the National Institute of Agricultural Technology -INTA-, was another of the considerations during the Assembly, since the producers that are represented need it.
