Ukrainian pull-out

This article was originally published in Foodnews

UKRAINE's apple growers may uproot some of their orchards and turn to other crops, according to Agrooglyad .Ukraine is a significant apple producer, with an output of 707 000 tonnes in 2007 and much of its fruit goes for juicing. However, this year, low prices for industrial apples and a sharp fall in purchases by AJC manufacturers may prompt a mass felling of old orchards. Processors are offering prices for raw material that are about half of last year's level, and higher production and transport costs have further eaten into growers' margins. However, while this uprooting of old orchards is a trend that has persisted for some years, the growing area under intensive orchards continues to increase.
