Red Bean Exports in Nicaragua Down 30%
The decline in red bean exports is caused by crop losses in the first term.

Jorge Molina, executive director of the Center for Export Procedures (CETREX) stated that exports of all beans have suffered a total reduction of only 2%, thanks to black bean exports whose main market is Venezuela.
The country's bean growers say that the closure of borders by the government has affected sales.
During the first five months of 2013 $1.1067 billion worth of goods were sold abroad, while in the same period in 2012 export revenues were $1.1852 billion.
The barriers on the export of the grain to Costa Rica and El Salvador have disappeared, and producers expect to sell about 200,000 quintals abroad.
The National Bean Commision of the Association of Manufacturers and Exporters of Nicaragua (APEN) has requested the government of Nicaragua to lift the barriers imposed two weeks ago on the export of beans, which have brought losses to producers.
