Ukraine: Frost has disastrous consequences for orchards

The severe frost, which controlled the weather in a large part of Ukraine from the middle of January till the end of February has had extremely damaging results for the orchards in Southern and Eastern Ukraine. Annually an important part of the
Ukrainian fruit harvest comes from orchards in these regions.
 
The meteorological service of the Ukraine came to this conclusion. According to them more than 50% of the flower buds were lost in the Eastern and Southern regions of the Ukraine because of frost. Only considering pear and apple trees the loss was slightly less dramatic, namely about 20%. What, however, is very alarming,
is the fact, that there are many orchards where the trees have suffered serious damage to the branches and trunks. This could have long term consequences for the fruit harvest in the coming years.
