Cold wave and snowfall are wreaking havoc in the country. But, apple production in the country may decline considerably due to less rain and snowfall than last year. According to the Meteorological Department, there is a possibility of rain-snowfall in the coming days. However, it is not conducive for the apple to complete its chilling period.

Even after more than a week in the month of January, there has been no rain in these states. There is no sign of snowfall due to lack of rain. Due to this, the apple crop is not getting the winter season as per the requirement. In this situation, experts have said that due to less snowfall, the size of the apple will be greatly affected and its sweetness will also decrease.

Huge decrease in apple production expected

Horticulturists say that if there is no rain and snowfall on a few days,apple yields can decline by 20 to 25 percent. Due to the decline in apple yield, the price of apple can also increase significantly. It is being said that due to lack of rain, moisture has disappeared from the land. As a result, apple plants are not getting enough moisture. According to experts, a minimum chilling period of 800 to 1000 hours is required for the growth of apple plants. But, due to lack of rain and snowfall, the chilling period has not been completed. In such a situation, apple yields are likely to be affected significantly.

To harvest with a combine, it is necessary to have 20% moisture in the crop. If the crop is being harvested with sickle etc. then dry the crop thoroughly and then start harvesting. Do not keep the crop stored in the field for a long time. Get the crop removed immediately using thresher etc.
