The Rural Development Institute (IDR) has estimated next year's peach harvest. According to the IDR, production is expected to be slightly lower than that the 127,241 tons achieved in the previous year. According to the data, there will be an important decrease the South oasis, where two thirds of the expected harvest was lost.
The season is almost coming to an end for the Greek peaches, which had a very long season to start with. Normally the season starts in June, but this year it started 15 days earlier. This season wasn’t without problems though. The rest of Europe was suffering from drought, but the Greek peach produce was affected by some rainy weather. Although half of the peaches will be sold locally, the other half will make its way into Europe.
Near daily rainfall over the past two weeks has left midstate peach growers struggling to get their crop to the shed, but so far they have met the challenge. Although too much rain can cause disease and impact peach quality, Dickey said the biggest problem has been the picking process. Wet weather can cause equipment to get stuck.
