Cucumber production in France decreases by 4%
The area has also decreased this year and this amounts to 550HA (-3%/2012). Only in the regions Centre and Bourgogne there is no decrease in area at all. The production on open ground decreased by 5% (60HA), in glasshouses -3% (350HA) and under plastic -2% (100HA).
At the start of the season prices were higher than in 2012 and the five year average remained high all through the selling season. As a result of the unfavourable spring weather supply and demand were just about in balance during the entire season. March sales were 20% lower than in 2012, but during June and July the level of sales were higher than a year ago. The export volume was the same as in 2012. The turnover figure increased by 9% compared to 2012 and by 14% compared to the average of 2008-2012.
