Banana and corn are staples of agriculture. As soon as they are ready for the harvest they already have buyers. And they are sold at a good price: a large bunch of bananas is sold at 5 or 6 dollars and a quintal of corn at $ 16.
The demand is so high, both in the domestic market and in other countries, that large companies are partnering with producers to invest in new banana plantations.
Papaya is another expensive fruit, as is the now famous soursop that prevents cancer, or the badea.
The one that does not do very well is rice. The price of the 210-pound paddy (shell) dropped from 35.50 to 30 and 32 dollars. The excessive supply has created problems.
The orange and tangerine producers are not doing well, either. A hundred oranges cost $ 2 in bulk in the countryside. In the city, 25 are sold for a dollar. (I)
