Frost warning until the end of the week
After the flowering phase had been delayed by several weeks due to the cold weather in the growing regions, the trees opened their blossoms last week. The weather was temporarily spring-like warm, providing optimal conditions for the apricot trees, but growers report very low temperatures at the beginning of the week and a frost warning from 12-17 April. Should the feared night frosts occur, this could lead to considerable crop damage.
Export prices, meanwhile, are unchanged from last week and stand at USD 6.65/kg
