The Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries, Abdelkader Bouazghi assured, on 22 December in Tipasa, that the production of bananas is possible in Algeria, underlining the availability of its services to accompany the farmers wishing to invest this field.

Visiting a banana production farm in Sidi Rached, considered 2nd of the kind, after that of Sidi Fredj (Algiers), the Minister supported the importance of this project, praising the efforts made by this operator, to master the techniques of growing bananas in greenhouses.

"Our services are ready to support farmers, with a view to developing this sector and achieving a world-class product, and thus helping to stabilize the prices of this fruit on the national market by offering the appropriate facilities," he said.

According to the explanation this farm will begin "next February" the planting of 20 ha of banana, before reaching the 100 ha in late 2019.

The operator of this farm, a former emigrant returned to invest in the country, intends to bring this area to 500 ha for the next five (5) years, it is reported, enough to help "regulate the price of bananas on the Algerian market, so as to adapt it to world prices (between 70 and 80 da kg) ", informed the promoter of this farm.
