Germany: Acreage of tree fruit decreases

The acreage of tree fruit in Germany has decreased with 2300 ha and is now 45,593 hectares, according to AMI. The last time the acreage was measured was in 2007. Apples, with 32,000 ha, are the only fruit still holding on to a decent, even growing acreage.

One of the losers is Prunus cerasus, or the sour cherry. After years of losing money on the markets the acreage has been brought back to a mere 2,290 hectare. Prunes, with a loss of 700 ha, is also on the losing side.
