Ban Lifted After American Greenhouse Growers Partnered with Peers in Dominican Republic

| Angela Canterbury

American greenhouse growers have made a lasting impact---increasing yields and improving lives throughout the developing world though the 30-year​-old Farmer-to-Farmer program. In the Dominican Republic, many fruit and vegetable growers are once again able to export to the US after a ban had been imposed due to the presence of the Mediterranean fruit fly or medfly, costing Dominican producers millions of dollars---an estimated $50 million in 2015 alone.
