As part of a plantation planting program, 885 hectares of new apple orchards will be planted in Hungary this year, the Minister of Agriculture István Nagy declared in Nagykálló (250 km northeast of Budapest) yesterday.
Nagy said that more than 770 producers from Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county, which provides the largest share of Hungarian apple production, successfully applied for the tender for the renewal of horticultural plants in the rural development program.
Last year, due to adverse weather effects, about 400,000 tons of apples were produced, of which 270,000 tons were for industrial use, and 130,000 tons were so-called table apples.
