Despite forecasts by the Ministry of Agriculture, the union has warned that the harvest scheduled for later this year will be insufficient.
Oscar Albanez, president of the Agricultural Suppliers Association (APA), told the press that "the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) has said that bean production will amount to 2.6 million quintals and our forecast is around 1.9 million."
Contrary to expectations, the bad weather that affected the harvest has not negatively impacted the production of beans.
Bean production in the period September-November grew by 30% compared to the previous reporting period May-September.
Increased production has enabled producers to increase exports, which amounted to 120 thousand quintals in the aforementioned period, according to the Association of Producers and Exporters of Nicaragua, APEN.
