This year’s grape harvest will be larger and of better quality than in 2021. Producers will be able to sell it better, writes Radio Europa Liberă Moldova.
The Ministry of Agriculture forecasts that the total production may be 520 thousand tons of grapes this year. Last year, its was 490 thousand tons. The harvest is divided almost equally into table grapes and grapes of technical varieties for wine production. The amount of grapes that will end up being processed can reach around 265 thousand tons, something more than in 2021, sources from the ministry told Free Europe.
Specialists say that, after a long period of drought, the rains of the last two to three weeks, including in the southern part of Moldova, came just in time to help the grains grow, on the eve of ripening, giving hope for a quality fruit.
