Agronometrics in charts: Favorable prospects for Peruvian avocados (Fresh Fruit Portal)
- Impact Area
Peru’s agriculture industry appears to have had the greatest recovery in the country, writes the Fresh Fruit Portal (Chile). The article discusses various aspects of agriculture in Peru including a focus on the Ukraine-Russia war and what effects it has on Peruvian farming.
Valeria Pineiro, IFPRI’s acting head for Latin America says that while Russia’s agricultural products including the three main types of fertilizer — potash, phosphate and nitrogen — are not subject to sanctions, exports continue to be hampered by a combination of port, shipping, banking, and insurance problems. The previous Peruvian government announced subsidies for the smallest farmers, but implementation was patchy.”
“The small farmer hasn’t necessarily been able to apply fertilizer or has applied very little,” meaning loss of productivity and even damage to plants, Peru is being hit hard,” says Pineiro.
