Guatemala: Grain and Feed Annual

According to new data and a recent crop assessment tour, Guatemala’s corn production is steadily dropping. This is mainly due to depressed prices, increased production costs, contraband and increased competition for land from other more profitable crops. In addition, Guatemala has experienced drier growing conditions in the past few years that have negatively affected corn yields. The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAGA) has officially declared a drought for much of the corn growing area for 2018/2019, making producers eligible for government relief.
