With the aim of mitigating pineapple production costs and providing a competitive industry on the island, Agriculture Secretary Ramón González Beiró on Sunday established through Administrative Order 2024-04 a provisional incentive to mitigate increases in the cost of supplies and materials for the production and sale of pineapples in Puerto Rico.


The incentive consists of $2 for each 30-pound box of pineapples sold from Oct. 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024 or until the end of the allocated funds of $250,000.


“Currently, the costs of supplies, materials and equipment for the commercial production and sale of pineapple cultivation in Puerto Rico have increased considerably,” González Beiró said. “For this reason, we have worked to identify funds that help pineapple farmers minimize expenses.”


Among the eligibility requirements for the aid, the farmer must have an insurance policy with the Agricultural Insurance Corp. (CSA), be registered on the AgroPerfil platform and meet all the eligibility requirements of the Regional Incentive Program, among other conditions. Applicants must complete the Application for Approval of Agricultural Practices, which can be found on the same platform.


More information is available at the eight regional offices around the island: San Germán, Utuado, Lares, Caguas, San Germán, Ponce, Naranjito and Arecibo.
