President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Thursday resumed his tours of Cuban municipalities in search of collective solutions to economic and social problems.

Accompanied by Roberto Morales, member of the Political Bureau and Secretary of Organization of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), the head of State started a tour of vital objectives in Ciego de Avila’s Ciro Redondo municipality, some 20 kilometers from the provincial capital.

According to local media, Díaz-Canel and his delegation visited the Ciro Redondo García Center for the Reproduction of Entomophages and Entomopathogens on Thursday morning.

Center Director Jaqueline Pereira explained to the president that the entity has seven production lines and the main one is dedicated to the production and release of the Lixophaga fly, with the purpose of protecting sugar cane.

According to the provincial newspaper Invasor, Pereira presented last year’s results, including four applications of Lixophaga flies to crops of the Ciro Redondo Sugar Agroindustrial Company to fight borer, the main pest that affects that grass.

Lixophaga fly is its natural enemy and is highly appreciated in times where pesticides and chemical fertilizers are scarce, the newspaper said.
