Soil Potential of Nicaragua

   
   

Physiographically, Nicaragua is divided into three macro-regions: Pacific, Central and Atlantic. The characteristics of each of these regions make the soils of Nicaragua some of the most fertile and productive of all of Central America.

Pacific Macro-region: Comprised of the provinces of Chinandega, León, Managua, Masaya, Granada, Carazo and Rivas. This is the zone which presents the greatest economic development, principally sustained by agricultural, industrial and commercial activity. It has multi-use soils, considered some of the best in the country for the production of various crops.

Central Macro-region: Consisting of the provinces of Matagalpa, Jinotega, Boaco, Chontales, Estelí, Madriz and Nueva Segovia. Its soils are suitable for the production of coffee, basic grains, tobacco, vegetables, non-traditional crops such as okra, and raising cattle for meat and milk, which are its main economic activities. Furthermore, this region provides favorable conditions for the production of pine trees, flowers and ferns.

Atlantic Macro-region: Comprised of the North Atlantic Autonomous Region (RAAN), the South Atlantic Autonomous Region (RAAS) and the Rio San Juan Province. The major economic activities of the area are the extraction of minerals including gold, industrial fishing and the commercialization of fine wood. Its natural wealth represents a great potential for the development of ecotourism.
