This year, half of the average annual crop, about 3.5-4.0 thousand tons of walnuts, can be produced in the country – the vice-president of the FruitVeB Hungarian Fruit and Vegetable Interprofessional Organization and Product Council told MTI, adding that the producer price and however, the consumer price of walnut kernels is still at last year’s average level.

Apáti Ferenc said that the spring frosts are mainly responsible for the significant crop loss, but the extreme rainy weather of recent weeks has also significantly delayed the harvest.

He emphasized that, similarly to last year, the walnut-shelled dragonfly also caused great damage, mainly in Transdanubia, and its occurrence in the eastern part of the country is still moderate. (MTI)
