Mexico: San Luis Potosi exports 8,000 tons of greenhouse tomatoes per year to the U.S.

The Ministry of Agricultural Development and Water Resources reported that the production of over 180 greenhouses created in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, was exported to the United States.

More than 8,000 tons of the seven tomato varieties grown in Santa Rita are exported annually to the United States; Detroit is the leading consumer state. The greenhouses from the highlands export more than 50 percent of their production to the cities of Houston and McAllen, the rest of their product is marketed in national and local markets.

The Roma tomato variety, as well as the cucumbers and the bell peppers produced in the greenhouses at the highlands, are widely accepted in the cities where they're exported.

The commitment of the State Government through the SEDARH is to continue training and supporting producers so that they market the production of the 185 greenhouses that were installed during the current state administration, as well as providing all the facilities so the crops can be placed in different markets, so that the product can be recognized for its quality and people continue enjoying it.
