12:40 - 27.04.2023

April 27, Fineko/ A few days ago, a hail with wind destroyed strawberry fields in Jalilabad.

ABC.AZ reports that the crop began to rot due to damage.

Farmers say that 40% to 50% of the usable products can be collected from the fields.

Weather conditions also caused serious damage to potato fields. Farmers say that as a result of the wind and hail, bushes broke. If the harvest is delayed for 10-15 days, the yield will also be 50% lower.

The State Center for Agrarian Development of Jalilabad district, the damage from hail covers hundreds of hectares.

Farmers cannot apply due to the lost harvest, as the acreage is not insured. Moreover, since the natural phenomenon reduces productivity, it will also affect the increase in the selling price.
