Hail claims on the Prairies are tracking similar to last year with Saskatchewan farmers reporting the most damage so far. However, there are still six weeks or so that could result in hail storms, leading Canadian Crop Hail Association president Rick Omelchenko to speculate that final numbers could be higher.
Hungarian producers expect average plum yields this year. Due to the weather, growers have had to cope with crop failure in many places, and there have also been some quality issues with the fruit due to the impact of hail. Although lower volumes could lead to higher prices, the season has so far not been too good.
On Tuesday, a delegation of the agricultural ministry and the agricultural insurance organisation (OGA) visited the Statos-Ayios Photios community in the Paphos district, where a recent hailstorm damaged seasonal crops. Recording of the damage caused by a heavy hailstorm on Monday began early on Tuesday morning.
With the Taber/Barnwell area being hit hard by hail last week, crop insurers have been busy with claims coming in from several different spots across the province. The local region, while the most recent, has not been the only hit area in the past few weeks either as several different places in the province have seen significant storms that have wiped out crops due to hail storms.
