Vegetable production to lose more than $40 million from rains in Costa Rica

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Vegetable production in Costa Rica will lose more than $40 million this year due to continuing rains in Central America and the collapse of its road infrastructure.

Vegetable growers have reported serious effects on the production of lettuce, garlic, cabbage, broccoli, and other crops, with preliminary figures showing an almost 50 percent reduction.

The situation is the result of intense rains associated with tropical storms Matthew and Nicole.
