STATUS OF THE GREENHOUSE INDUSTRY IN MEXICO

M. Steta
Growth of the vegetable greenhouse industry in Mexico has accentuated in the last number of years, passing from less than 50 hectares in 1991, to over 350 in 1997. Environmental conditions, access to different technologies, market windows and opportunities throughout North America, diverse problems affecting open field production, and increased demand for better and safer quality produce, are factors inducing the expansion of this mode of production. Limitations include poor infrastructure, lack of technical know how and support, a limited long term investment vision, and financial limitations. It is expected that the industry will accelerate its growth, and that by the year 2,000, over 500 hectares of greenhouse vegetables, will be in production in Mexico.
