Highlights:

  • Harvest of Primera (main season) maize and beans completed in September across Central America.

  • While national production was generally average across the region, with exception of Honduras, due to an increase in area planted, final yields were reduced due to irregular weather conditions during the start of the season including high temperatures, below-average and irregular rainfall, and extended dry spells, which resulted in severe soil moisture deficits.
