Mexico detects irregular chili pepper planting in Sinaloa

As chili pepper production in Southern Mexico is undergoing uncontrolled planting, the authorities are intending to regulate it.

"Unfortunately in the south, chili plants are being sown with no control. The producers must plant these crops taking the market into account," said Juan Enrique Habermann Gastélum, Secretary of Agriculture and Livestock of Sinaloa.

The continued problem of planting in an uncontrolled manner would affect the production value of this product, which could lead to limited areas for planting this crop in order to avoid further problems. Habermann Gastélum therefore hopes to reach an agreement and make a agreement with chili growers to respect the planting areas.
