European Union: Prognosfruit 2022

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   E42022-0055

On August 3-5, 2022, the World Apple and Pear Association (WAPA) presented the 2022 EU apple and pear crop forecast at the 47th edition of the Prognosfruit convention. WAPA forecasts the 2022 EU fresh apples crop at 12.2 million metric tons (MT), 1.3 percent above the 2021 harvest and nine percent higher than the average of the preceding three years. Production of fresh pears is forecast at 2.1 million MT. This is an increase of 20 percent compared to 2021, and five percent higher than the preceding three years’ average. This forecast reflects the situation as of mid-July. The heatwave and drought in July/August in large parts of Europe may result in a substantially lower production than forecast.
