Apple farmers in Poland facing crisis 
after string of cold snaps
"This is the biggest disaster we've seen 
since the Second World War"

08 May 07 - "We estimate losses at more than 80 percent of production, hitting four or even six billion zlotys (1.0-1.5 billion euros, 1.45-2.2 billion dollars)," Miroslaw Maliszewski, president of the Polish Association of Fruit Producers, told AFP.

"This is the biggest disaster we've seen since the Second World War," he said.

Bozena Nosecka, a senior official at the Polish government's Agricultural and Food Economics Institute, said the situation was "tragic".

Nosecka said that the two cold snaps, which brought freezing overnight temperatures on April 22-23 and May 1-3, had also hit Poland's cherry, pear and strawberry producers.
