Señaló Conveagro

Los productos más afectados en la costa por la mayor temperatura serían el mango, el arroz, la vid, la caña de azúcar y el algodón

( El gerente de la Convención Nacional del Agro (Conveagro), Carlos Alviar Madueño, señaló que la producción del sector agrario nacional podría caer este año entre 20% y 50%, dependiendo de la intensidad con la que se presente el Fenómeno El Niño.

Al respecto, indicó que en la costa, los productos más afectados por la mayor temperatura serían el mango, el arroz, la vid, la caña de azúcar y el algodón, mientras que en la zona altoandina se afectaría la producción de papa y quinua.

En ese sentido, destacó que los precios de estos productos agrarios podrían incrementarse debido a que se reduciría la producción.

"Vamos a tener menos producción, los precios se van a elevar, y creo que recuperarse de un Niño no va a ser tan fácil y esto va en perjuicio de esta gran masa de pequeña producción que existe, son más de dos millones y medio de unidades agropecuarias que existen en la agricultura familiar",

Carlos Alviar, destacó que Conveagro hizo un llamado al Ministerio de Agricultura y Riego (Minagri) para realizar mayores inversiones, con el fin de mitigar los efectos negativos del Fenómeno El Niño en el sector. "No hay que esperar a fines de agosto para tomar medidas".

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
