There is a significant downward trend in apple exports from Ukraine for the second season in a row both in terms of quantity. Ukrainian market operators, analysts, and therefore the producers themselves note the most important reason is that the overall decline within the gross harvest of apples in Ukraine for the last two seasons.
EastFruit experts tried to understand in detail the current situation since the intensification of apple production (albeit at a slow pace) is progressing according to the data received from the farmers. In addition, all new apple projects that began in Ukraine over the last 5-7 years were developed exclusively taking into account all the necessary elements of intensive orchards.
Experts say, these facts should lead to a higher percentage of high-quality apples and neutralize to the greatest extent possible any negative impacts from the weather on apple production in Ukraine.
