Mexican agriculture is starting to be affected by the coronavirus

The worldwide expansion of the coronavirus is causing economic uncertainty in Mexico and threatening to significantly increase the unemployment rate in the country, as it has already affected its primary sector. Day laborers in the state of Jalisco, one of the largest berry producing states, are already suffering the consequences of this situation.

The municipalities of the region, such as Zapotlan el Grande, Gomez Farias, Zacoalco de Torres, Tuxpan, and Zapotiltic, employ nearly 70,000 farmworkers, many of whom will be affected by the reduction in berry consumption in the main export markets, which have been affected by the pandemic.

Jalisco berries are mainly exported to the United States and Canada, in addition to other markets like Japan, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates.
