Raspberry harvest in Poland may be 60% higher than last year

08/03/2020

Poland’s berry production in 2020 is estimated at more than 0.5 million tons, which is almost 10% more than in 2019

The Polish State Statistics Service predicts that this year’s berry harvest will be 10% more than in 2019. The largest increase will be for raspberries: + 60% compared to last year’s extremely low harvest.

This is reported by Agrotimes with reference to the SadyOgrody portal.

Poland’s berry production in 2020 is estimated at more than 0.5 million tons, which is almost 10% more than in 2019.

Raspberries wintered much better this season, but this does not apply to all varieties. On non-irrigated plantations and with insufficient care, raspberry yields will be significantly lower than last year. The country is projected to harvest 122,000 tonnes of raspberries in 2020, 60% more than last year’s very low harvest. The weather forecast suggests that the autumn raspberry harvest will also be high. At the same time, the area of ​​cultivation of raspberries has decreased by about 10% compared to the previous year.

The yield of black currant and garden strawberry (strawberry) was negatively affected by frost damage and lack of sufficient moisture in the soil during flowering and fruit setting. In addition, the strawberries suffered from gray mold and reduced yields due to rains.

The total harvest of currants (both black and colored) may exceed 130 thousand tons, that is, it will be 5% higher than a year earlier. The black currant crop is estimated at more than 93 thousand tons (i.e., about 2% more than in 2019), while the colored currant crop is estimated at more than 39 thousand tons, that is, about 15% more than harvest 2019.

This year, the production of garden strawberries was estimated at more than 160 thousand tons, that is, about 9% less than last year.

The gooseberry harvest was generally high – over 10 thousand tons, that is, 9% more than last year.

The production of berries is estimated at about 99 thousand tons, that is, 12% more than a year earlier (mainly due to a significant increase in the area of ​​blueberry plantations). The yield of this berry has increased by 18%, due to the high yield of young plantations. All species in this group (except grapes) have better yields than in the previous year.
