FOCUS on Latest FAO Report: High Red Bean Prices in Central America

In Central America prices of main staples at high levels

Prices of red beans, an important source of protein in the diets of the subregion, remained generally stable in March and April, reflecting new supplies from the 2011 secondary season harvest, but were still at very high levels, twice those of a year ago. The increased level of price is a consequence of the reduced 2011 main crop season affected by adverse weather.
