High prices – about US$160 per quintal – have spurred the increase said José Saavedra, a coffee grower.
Guatemalan corn growers expect the harvest for the period 2011-2012 to be the best in the last 20 years.
Colombia’s coffee harvest may decline in 2011 after wet weather caused the worst outbreak of a plant-damaging fungus in a quarter of a century.
During the period January-July 2012-2013 production increased from 1.2392 million to 1.3074 million boxes of bananas.
Heavy rainfall during the last two weeks affected an additional 5% of the melon production in Guanacaste (Costa Rica). Growers lost already 35% of their crop (about 77,000 tons) of the projected harvest for this year.
