This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE AREA under carrots for the fresh market in France increased by 3% to 8 567 hectares in the 2010/11 season (ending April 2011), continuing the trend of the past three seasons. As a result, production is up 5% on last season, at 331 304 tonnes. However, this is 2% down on the five year average. Supplies to the market are dwindling as the end of the season approaches.
