Uncertainty has reached potato growers in the central and southern regions of Peru, such as Junin, Ayacucho, Apurimac and Huancavelica, who are unable to harvest this crop. tuber announcements of future blockades in central road.

This was confirmed by Freddy Garcia, President Rural Potato Corporation in RPP News. Farmers who have planted local potatoes as part of a small campaign to take advantage of this season’s demand will be hardest hit.

“They informed us that they were going to close the roads, so there will be a shortage for Lima and the cities. We ask you to predict the timing … We want to know why it is more harmful to store (potatoes) on the highway, so the supply on the market slows down a little, ”the representative explained.

The Central Highway is one of the targets of protesters demanding early elections. If this route is closed, Lima’s supply will be at risk, as 60% of the tuber load comes from regions such as JuninHuanuco, Ayacucho and Pasco, according to the Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (midagri).

Drop in potato revenues at Lima’s Big Wholesale Market

Today, for the second day in a row, there has been a drop in the receipt of potatoes in Large Wholesale Market of Lima (GMML). According to Midagry, falling is normal on the Wednesday of every week. On Monday, it entered 181% more than the last 4 Mondays, and today it fell by 7.7%.

Threat to production due to drought persists

This is not the only issue that could affect potato production in the future. droughts follow southern peru. The spokesman also complained about this, because Midagri does not report seasons when the cold will be constant.

“Midagri should announce, inform us from such and such a date to such and such a date there will be a drought, take forecasts. We in the communities will see how we will do so that the ice does not affect us, because the potatoes are already going to start flowering, if the ice burns them, then there will be a failure, ”he warned.
