Drought nearly halves Hungaryʼs apple crop
Hungarian orchard owners are expected to pick about 500,000 tons of apples this year, down from the more than 900,000 tons of a year earlier, due to drought, the head of the Apple Products Council told Hungarian news agency MTI today.
In June, it was thought that apple crops would reach 500,000-600,000 tons, said Ferenc Takács. The bad weather has also affected the size and color of the apples this year, he added. Apple crops are not expected to be large anywhere in Europe this year, he added.
