Renewal of plantations boosts Panama exports of bananas

Tuesday, October 24, 2017


Renovation of plantations and a favorable climate explain the improvement in yield per hectare of bananas in Bocas del Toro, Panama, which in the last year rose from 1,700 boxes of 18 kilos to 2,600 boxes.

The figures were confirmed by Cooperativa Bananera del Atlántico, which grows 550 hectares of bananas in Changuinola, and managed to increase production by 53 percent.
