Cuba’s agriculture production declines
2013-05-24 13:34:14

The Cuban government says it has seen a dramatic and unexplained drop in
the harvest of vegetables and fruit in the first three months of the year.

In a report, the Cuban National Statistics Office gave no reason for the
production decline, despite government reforms to increase production in
the Spanish-speaking country that spends more than US$1.5 billion on
food imports.

The office said overall agricultural production with the exception of
sugarcane, declined by 7.8 per cent in the first quarter of this year
compared to the first three months of 2012.

Cuban President Raúl Castro, had initiated a campaign to heighten
domestic food production, by leasing fallow state lands to private
farmers, hiking the prices that the government pays for agricultural
goods and easing state controls on the distribution networks.
