Grain production in Santa Cruz fell by 5% and sales by 15%

Production of soybeans, maize, sunflower wheat, chia and sage fell by 5% in 2019, said Bolivia's grain association (Anapo). Anapo's presidente, Miguel Pantoja, said that the production generated $985 million, 15% lower than 2018. Stagnant production surface, lack of policies to solve existing structural problems, and low international prices are some of the factors that affected the sector.
