Ice damage on just 32,000 hectares in 2020
Thanks to the national ice mitigation system, claims for just 32,000 hectares were filed last year, despite extreme weather, the National Chamber of Agriculture (NAK) said, according to profitline.hu.
Farmers reported 72,000 hectares of agricultural ice damage in 2017, the last year before the nationwide ice damage mitigation system was operational.
When it was introduced in 2018, farmers reported ice damage for only 22,000 hectares. In 2019, this figure was 37,000 hectares. Hungary is the only country in Europe with a national ice mitigation system.
