Extremadura: after the rains...

31/05/2018 - François-Xavier Branthôme - 2018 Season - Read in French

After the hailstorms which hit Extremadura last Sunday, Tomato News received some further comments and testimonials regarding this exceptional phenomenon. 

The following photographs were taken of the tomato fields affected last Sunday by heavy rains. Depending on the areas, accumulated rainfall varied from 60 to 100 mm (liters per square meter). This was in the area of Miajadas (Vegas Altas) and Lobón-Arroyo (Vega Bajas). Large areas were affected. This is in addition to hailstorms that occurred one week ago in the Santa Amalia area, which affected around 1 000 hectares.

Transplanting is ending this week (22) in Extremadura and it is expected to be reduced by 8-10% compared to contracted surfaces, due to the transplanting difficulties, the lack of plants and the number of farmer who have given up.

The temperatures are very cold for this time of year, with minimum values around 10ºC at night and maximum values around 22ºC. So the outcome of the crop is very uncertain.
