Growing Peanuts in Haiti
Peanuts are an important crop in Haiti. Not only does everyone love mamba and knows that it is healthy and full of protein, but peanuts are an important cash crop. Few crops offer as good an opportunity to make money over a short amount of time. They are relatively drought tolerant and require few inputs to have a reasonable harvest.
However, there is great potential to increase the production of peanuts and for farmers to make even more money. And we don’t mean simply farming more land. These increases are coming from producing more peanuts on the same amount of land.
