Farmers harvest 800,000-900,000 tonnes in an average year, the report says.
Despite expectations of a good harvest this year, from mid-March onwards, several waves of significant frost damage hit plantations across the country.
Ferenc Apáti, vice-president of FruitVeB, explained that the largest loss is expected from apricots, peaches and cherries, and that the yield of these fruits is expected to fall by a quarter to a third compared to a good year, the agriculture website adds.
