Land for growing certified organic crops sharply reduced in Costa Rica

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

The amount of land for growing certified organic crops in Costa Rica fell between 2006 and 2009, despite a law for development and promotion of organic agriculture.

The reduction from 10,711 hectares to 8,052 hectares is reported by the Accreditation and Registry of Organic Agriculture.

The fall especially affects products for export, but also products for internal consumption.
