A recent hailstorm was seen in parts of Jixian County, Shanxi, an important apple production area in China. Growers reported that the protective bags in the orchard were knocked off the tree and torn. The hailstorm and strong wind have resulted in damage to crops such as vegetables and corn to varying degrees. In the next few days, due to Typhoon Bavi and its peripheral cloud systems, Shandong, eastern Hebei, northeastern China regions, and eastern Inner Mongolia will experience heavy rainfall moving from south to north. The impact of hail storms on growers is huge, as apples are about to ripen and the production will be severely affected.
