The president of the Association of Raspberry and Blackberry Farmers of Serbia, Dobrivoje Radovic, said today that walnut-sized hail has nearly destroyed the raspberry farms in Arilje, Lucani, Ivanjica, a part of Uzice and on the Golija mountain.
He has told Beta that there were two waves of the hailstorm, yesterday afternoon and last night, and that damage is enormous.
– The “heart” of the raspberry production, Arilje and its area, is destroyed. There were 300 anti-hail rockets fired, to little effect – Radovic said.
The expert services of the Ministry of Agriculture are on the site in order to estimate the scale of the damage.
