The country has invested $30 million on an improved seed and fertilizer program thus far, looking for increased productivity.
Carlos A. Torres reported statements by Agriculture Minister Mario Salaverría in his article in elsalvador.com: "We expect a harvest of 22 million quintals of corn (the country consumes 17 million) and 2.8 million quintals of beans, of which the country will consume 2.5 million quintals and export 200 thousand quintals."
The rains and floods in the last few days in Honduras have caused over 23,000 hectares of crops to be lost.
According to information from the Department of Agriculture and Farming, most of the loss are beans and corn, and to a lesser degree rice and sorghum.
The greatest damage was in the Comayagua valley, the lower areas of the Southern Region, especially in the Coast of Amates, in the Cortes department and much of Olancho, especially in the El Patuca region.
