The new infrastructure from the Rice Growers Association of Chiriquí (APACH) will be located in Alanje, in the province of Chiriquí, and will have a storage capacity of half a million quintals.
Domestic production from this agricultural cycle will leave a shortfall of 9,000 hectares.
30% of grain plantations in the province of Chiriqui are being affected by an outbreak of the mite Spinky.
Rice growers are committed to producing 100 million quintals more than in the previous crop and the government is committed to buying 100% of the production, but at the same price as last year.
Corporación Arrocera de Costa Rica has invested $3 million in order to increase its production capacity by 60 million quintals per month.
