Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has the ability to further diversify the agriculture sector, and evidence of this can be found in the 2020 sorrel production figures.
According to the Zero Hunger Trust Fund, quoting the SVG Statistical Office data, this country produced 553,000 pounds of sorrel in 2020.
According to data from the SVG Statistical Office, this was the highest production of sorrel during a 5-year period (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020).
In 2016, the country produced 432,000 pounds of sorrel, 464,000 pounds in 2017, 548, 000 pounds in 2018, and 449,000 pounds in 2019.
