Hungary's plum harvest is expected to remain below the average, at 40,000-50,000 tonnes this year, due to last year's drought and unfavorable weather at the time of pollination, growers association FruitVeB said on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Plums are grown on an area of close to 6,000 hectares in Hungary and the average plum crop is around 60,000-65,000 tonnes.
Around half of the crops is used by the processing industry. Exports amount to 2,000-4,000 tonnes, the report notes.
