Heladas dañan 20 mil toneladas de fruta con cuesco, además afectó a cítricos y hortalizas en Murcia
“The frosts have affected specific production areas of Murcia, with the most affected being those of Calasparra and Cieza. We don’t have official figures yet, but we estimate that around 20,000 tonnes may have been lost, mainly extra early nectarines that were already in bloom,” says Joaquín Gómez, president of Apoexpa. “Fortunately, these areas were undergoing a major varietal conversion to less early varieties, which has greatly attenuated the impact of frost,” he said.
