The frosts of May have caused serious damages to the Ukrainian agriculture this year. The Ministry of Agriculture predicts that fruit production will be 29 percent less than expected, only 1.46 million tons instead of the predicted 2.46 million tons, the ministry’s press department announced its latest prognosis on Monday.


According to the Ministry’s data, late spring frosts mostly damaged the cherry, autumn apricot, nectarine and plumage. A total of 39 percent less of these fruits will be harvested, instead of the previously projected 476,000 tonnes, only 292,000 tonnes. (Kovács Andrea, MTI)
