Arequipa farmers increase avocado production fivefold

Thanks to a 287,000 soles ($77,150) government investment and a 71,000 soles ($19,000) association investment in the programme Agroideas, producers from Arequipa managed to increase their avocado production by 500%, going from 50 to 250 tons of annual harvest. This project benefitted 36 households in the region that struggled in light of the pandemic restrictions.
