Despite the rains, Moldova hopes to export cherries to Italy

Gardeners hope to sell cherries for export at the price of “minimum profitability” – not less than $ 1.7 / kg.

According to managers of a number of large horticultural enterprises, precipitation in June generally negatively affected the quality of early and mid-ripe sweet cherries. Ripe berries have cracked and, to a large extent, have lost attractiveness for consumers, as well as value for traders-buyers. As a result, in the second half of June, wholesale prices for mediocre quality products in the domestic market fell to 15-16 lei / kg ($ 0.9-0.96 / kg), the maximum price for high-quality products did not exceed 28 lei / kg ($ 1 6 / kg). However, in many intensive orchards of late cherries – Krupnoplodnaya, Cordia, Regina, Ferovia and others – the June rainfall lessened the ripening fruits (especially on those plantations where the farmers provided blowing of drops from the trees due to the operation of the sprayers at idle “).

With this in mind, gardeners still hope to sell these products for export at a price of “minimum profitability” of at least $ 1.7 / kg. They consider the price, which for the most part to compensate for the significant loss of cherry yield from spring frosts and provide some kind of “development potential,” $ 2 / kg and above.

Certain hopes that some agricultural enterprises that are the most technologically advanced will be able to realize high-quality sweet cherries of the late varieties at the indicated prices arise in the context of the interest of European buyers. This week Moldova will be visited by the appraisal mission of a trading company from Italy, which will determine to what extent the supply of cherries from the best Moldovan enterprises can fit into the requirements of European retailers. At least in the current crisis season.
