Vast amount of land in Nicaragua unused

Thursday, July 4, 2013

Some 43 percent of Nicaraguan land has potential for agriculture, the highest number in Central America.

However, the country only uses 15 percent, according to data from the World Bank.

Expansion of cattle farming and legal issues over land ownership are among the main reasons the land is unused, the country's agriculture Ministry said.
