Canada - Nova Scotia lost as much as 50 per cent of its apple crop in 2018

It’s been a hard year for apple growers in Nova Scotia. Between 40 and 50 per cent of apple crops were lost in the province this year, according to the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers’ Association.

Larry Lutz, the association’s president, said that below-freezing temperatures in June played a big part, and the hardest-hit crops were in areas at low elevations.
