Heavy rain in Nabeul damaged 864 hectares of vegetable crops and orchards covering 794 hectares on the 22nd September. Almost 100 hectares of strawberry productions were damaged. This represents 1 fifth of strawberry acreage (500 hectares/year). Nabeul is Tunisia's leading strawberry producer with production varying between 15,000 to 17,000 tons (99%).
The flooding, however, has not had such serious effects on the 2018-2019 citrus harvest with damaged acreage not reaching more than 1,000 hectares of the 20,000 total hectares. Nabeul's citrus production reaches 305,000 tons/year which is 75% of national production.
