The winter rainfall was favorable to the domestic potato plantations, and the cultivated area is not expected to decrease this year, according to the National Potato Association and Product Council, writes business daily Világgazdaság.
The water supply of the soil has thus been restored, but the mild winter is not a good sign.
It is indicative that the weather will be warmer and drier than average this year as well. Potatoes do not tolerate drought well, and without irrigation, they could no longer be produced in Hungary.
Almost nine-tenths of Hungarian plantations are also irrigated.
Potato production area may remain at more than 6,000 hectares in Hungary this year, according to the data on seed potato orders.
