Ukrsadprom Allowing Fruit, Nuts, Berries Total Yield Loss Up To 1-1.2 Million Tons Due To Frost In May

Ukrsadprom Allowing Fruit, Nuts, Berries Total Yield Loss Up To 1-1.2 Million Tons Due To Frost In May

The Ukrsadprom Association engaged in horticulture and berry growing allows total losses of fruit, nuts and berries to amount up to 1-1.2 million tons due to low temperatures (frost) in May.

The Association's Head Dmytro Kroshka has said this at a press conference, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the data of the Association, losses of berry yield in central and south regions make up to 90%, with mostly affected Kyiv, Vinnytsia, Khmelnytskyi, Lviv, Cherkasy, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhia regions.

In stone fruit crops, the losses in Ukraine make approximately 80%, in apples and pears - up to 40%.

At the same time at some horticulture economic entities in Chernihiv, Vinnytsia, Cherkasy and Mykolaiv regions the yield was destructed completely.

According to the data of Ukrsadprom, in Barskyi district of Vinnytsia region 100% of wild strawberry and about 90% of apple yields were destroyed, in Tylchunskyi district - 90% of wild strawberry, in Chernivtsi region - up to 85% of stone fruit crops, in Kyiv region - 90% of wild strawberry, 100% of raspberry, 70-75% of strawberry and 60% of current.

In Mykolaiv region losses of yields of apple, pear, plum, cherry, bird cherry, apricot and peach amount to 90-100%.

In Cherkasy region spring frosts destroyed all apple yield, in Khmelnytskyi region - 60% of black current and up to 30% of apple and pear.

Such decimating losses will certainly impact food prices in Ukraine, though experts do not make any forecasts until June when the situation will become more clear.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club allows up to 90% of loss of yield in early berries and up to 50% of yield loss in fruit in western regions of the country where low temperatures were most extreme in May.

Besides, frost that befell in May was preceded with abnormally low temperatures in April which also impacted yields of apricots, cherries, bird cherries and peaches.
