To make good money on the berry in 2018 failed.
The sales season of sweet cherry in Ukraine comes to an end: at the moment Ukrainian farmers offer residual batch of cherries for 10 to 18 UAH/kg, depending on varieties, quality and volume, informs Rus.Media.
Evaluation producers, season the Ukrainian cherries, almost mostly negative. So, farmers had to abandon the collection of the crop of cherries at the end of the 2018 season for several reasons. In particular, the producers left the berries on the trees due to the relatively low demand for the products, and also due to the high demand in the market.
Moreover, farmers are faced with the fact that dramatically increased the cost of collecting cherries in 2018, including the cost of labor. This season, they planned at least 30% increase in their labour costs, not to mention the other production articles. At the same time, the prices at which manufacturers finish the season of implementation, at least one-third lower compared to the same period of the previous year.
It is worth noting that those companies that actively worked on export, give a more optimistic comments in the first place, due to the fact that received for their products a price of 1.5-2 times higher than when trading on the domestic market. At the same time Belarus remained the main importer of cherries from the Ukraine, despite the fact that attempts to increase its presence on other markets were more active than last year.
