Stone fruit crop down

This article was originally published in Foodnews

STONE fruit co-operatives in Castilla-La-Mancha have started harvesting apricots, but the outlook does not look good. Intense rainfall and hail during the flowering period has led to the region's smallest crop in history at around 650 tonnes, when it should be 15 000-16 000 tonnes. Hailstorms also affected this year's pavia peach crop, with losses estimated at around 30%. Co-operativas Agro-alimentarias in the region expected pavia production to be 5 500 tonnes and 900 tonnes for plums. Total stone fruit production will be down by 61.3%.
