Last year was a memorable year for the wine industry, as vineyards had to be protected in extreme weather conditions, and yet excellent wines were produced – was said at the 19th National Syngenta Wine Competition awards on Thursday evening in Siófok.

Varga Zoltán, Campaign Manager at Syngenta, said last year about 400,000 tonnes of grapes were grown on 65,000 hectares in the country. The weather in 2019 was different from the multi-year average; May was several degrees colder and June warmer. In addition, May has become the rainiest month of the decade, a critical period in crop protection. Grapevine sprouts have become a major pathogen, resulting in crop failure. (MTI)
