The vegetable sowing area in the Czech Republic has diminished by 30 percent over the past decade, according to figures by the Czech and Moravian Vegetable Growers’ Union, released on Wednesday. While in 2002, vegetables were grown on 12,700 hectares of land, a decade later it was 9,171 hectares. Imports of vegetables have grown by 50 percent over the same period, and now account for two thirds of all vegetables consumed in the country. However, the imports have slowed down as Czech consumers increasingly prefer home-grown vegetables.
