EU: Vegetables 2001: Bad weather damages the crops and hits the vegetable market
After a rainy summer in 2000 and carryover stocks that were hardly sufficient, the 2001 vegetables crop took a bad departure. Spring refused to take over from winter and continuous precipitation had already caused irrevocable damages to the whole European production of vegetables. The dramatic weather conditions of this autumn amplify the losses estimated, 5 months ago, to 15 - 20% of usual tonnages. While too heavy rains especially hit northern Europe - mainly Belgium, the Netherlands and the North of France that are the 3 largest processing countries in the EU -, most of southern areas had to face outstanding variations in temperatures. A significant downturn in Eastern Europe (Poland) output is also expected and being blamed on the poor weather during the growing and harvesting period.
