Agriculture ministry: Armenia to have 8,000 tons of apricot this year against 88,800 in 2013

YEREVAN, July 4. /ARKA/. Armenia’s apricot crop will not exceed 8,000 tons this year, while in 2013 the country had 88,800 tons, Deputy Agriculture Minister Garnik Petrosyan said Friday as presented the ministry’s outlooks at a new conference.  

He said that this decline was due to freezing weather and heavy snowfalls on March 30. 
In his words, apricot exports total 214 tons this year, while a year before 12,000 were exported by early July.   

Petrosyan also said 19,000 tons of potatoes were exported in Jan-June 2014 against 7,000 tons in the same period a year before, and also 1,523 tons of early potatoes, while in 2013 no early potatoes were exported..-0----
