In the first five months of this year, Peru's agricultural production grew by 3.4% compared with the same period last year, according to information published by the Office of Economic and Statistical Studies (EEO), of the Ministry of Agriculture (MINAG.)

The increase was due to growth of the livestock subsector (4.6%) and recovery from the decline recorded until April 2012 of the agricultural sub-sector (2.7%).


Production in the livestock subsector grew thanks to the production of poultry and cattle, and by the increased production of fresh milk and pork. In the case of pig production, in May there was a 4.2% increase over the same period last year.


In the last ten years the average growth rate of agricultural production accumulated from January to May was 4.0%, up 0.6 percentage points over the rate of growth of agricultural production in the same period this year (3.4%).
