Moldovan gardeners need to learn from Polish apple export experience


Moldovan gardeners should not flatter themselves with high apple prices, which are periodically observed in the Russian market

During a recent study visit to Poland, a group of gardeners from the Republic of Moldova noted significant progress in the field of nursery in this country. The Moldovan delegation praised the growing quality of Polish planting material for apple clones Dark Ann, Dark Baron, Must, Brookfield, Schniga, Golden Reinders, Red Johnaprince, Jeromine, Ligol. At the same time, the specialist of the marketing department of the Association of Manufacturers and Exporters of Moldova Fruct Evgeni Bumakov drew attention to the fact that currently the most numerous group of foreign clients of Polish nursery enterprises are gardeners from the CIS countries, in particular, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. “Obviously, this means that more and more apple orchards are being laid there, and our share in the apple markets in these countries will decline already in the short term,” summed up Evgeny Bumakov.

In the context of this obvious conclusion, another participant in the study visit to Poland, gardener Vadim Lupu (Kolikeuts village, Briceni district) believes that Moldovan agricultural producers should not be seduced by the high prices of apples that have been periodically observed on the Russian market over the past few years. The situation on the Russian fruit market is unstable, and the risks – both marketing and political – are very high. From this point of view, according to the farmer, it is necessary to actively adopt the Polish experience in exporting apples to the countries of the Middle East, Southeast Asia and North Africa.

Also, many participants in the study visit to Poland found it very interesting to reorient small farms from producing apples of such varieties as Idared to growing berry crops.
