Fall in Huelva’s berry production

Thu 30/03/2023 by Richard Wilkinson

Freshuelva (The Association of Strawberry Producers and Exporters of Spain’s Huelva region) projects a 30% fall in strawberry output and a 25% smaller blueberry crop compared to the last campaign, owing to a “very difficult” season, including rising input costs and adverse weather conditions.

The excessive heat in October meant that 20% of the plants had to be replanted. This was followed by an excessively cold January and February, which led to a significant drop in production. Since the December rains, there has been no further precipitation in the area. Huelva also faces stiff competition from Moroccan berries.
