Cerezas/USDA: Se espera caída del 5% de producción de la Unión Europea
Total cherry production in MY 2021/22 is projected to decline 5.3 percent to 664,800 MT due to the expected decline in the major producing countries. Unfavorable weather conditions with frost and heavy rainstorms during the spring season account for the drop in production (see Table 4).
According to FAS projections, in MY 2021/22 the updated data for total EU cherry planted area will remain stable at around 164,000 ha. Additionally, Hungarian planted area has been updated for MY 2020/21 and MY 2021/22, resulting in a higher total EU cherry area than previously estimated.
