Due to the weather conditions, the raspberry yield has so far been halved compared to last year and a maximum of 25,000-30,000 tons can be expected if there is no more hail until the harvest, said the president of the Association of Raspberry Producers, Dobrivoje Radovic.

He said for the Beta news agency that, in the preceding two days, the hail and the floods had damaged around 15% of the yield and that, due to the lower price, the lack of agritechnical measures and the April hail, the yield in certain parcels would be lower by 40-70%.

He pointed out that, in the previous year, around 55,000 tons of raspberries had been produced and that, together with the 2022 stock, nearly the entire quantity of around 65,000 tons had been exported, whereas a smaller quantity of processed products remained.

Radovic said that the minimum input purchase price for the 2024 yield would be RSD 400 per kilogram.
