12% disminuirá la producción total de melocotones y nectarines de los países de la Unión europea en campaña 2018/19
Production of peaches and nectarines in MY 2018/19 for the EU-28 is estimated at 3.5 million MT, 12 percent lower compared to the previous campaign due to expected lower production in most of the major producing countries due to unfavorable weather conditions, with a long winter and a wet and cold spring, which reduced the volume harvested. According to FAS post projections, the area planted is projected to remain stable in MY 2018/19 at around 228,000 ha.
In MY 2018/19 fresh consumption of peaches and nectarines is projected to decrease to 2.6 MMT. Use of peaches and nectarines for processing may also decrease to 711,480 MT as a result of the lower supply compared to previous year.
