Guatemala fruit exports are expected to rise by 5.6 percent next year, says Agexport
Sales of fruit from Guatemala are expected to rise 5.6 percent to $474.6 million in 2011, a leading exporters group said.
According to Marta Castañón, coordinator of the agriculture commission of Agexport, the sector is expected to drop about 1.6 percent in 2010 because of “all the natural disasters that we have confronted.”
In addition to the damage to the infrastructure and the proliferation of fungus, there were delays in harvesting crops at the end of the year.
