The Czech Republic’s fruit harvest this year is set to be 26 percent lower than the average for the last five years due to frosts in spring, the head of the country’s fruit growers association told the Czech News Agency on Tuesday. Moravian crops were hardest hit by the adverse weather conditions and the yield of apricots and peaches, which are grown there, is likely to be a full 70 percent below the five-year average. Agriculture Minister Marian Jurečka says he will call on the government to compensate the farmers affected, as also happened last year.
