The Soya farmers in Gatsibo District decry low prices of the soya produce that is grown on the 2000hectares on the modern terraces in the District.
These farmers say that if the price of soya is increased and the produce also increases, the economy of the district will also be improved as well as its people.
Ambrose Ruboneza the mayor of Gatsibo district says that the low prices of soya are worrying and is sure that if prices are a little bit higher, farmers will increase the production and soya products will be much available in Rwanda.
Mount Meru Soyco factory in Rwanda
Soya farmers from different cooperatives have a meeting with the Ministry of trade and industries next week to discuss the way forward of soya, how to develop it for the better of Rwandans especially in providing health products.
The increase of soya production will help investors including factories that process soya products like Mount Meru factory (SOYCO) in the eastern province of Rwanda to get enough soya produce nearby and at a satisfying price with farmers.
