Most of the perennial crops grown on 2000 hectares (5,140 acres) died due to snowfall, said correspondent Levan Bolkvadze.

“As a result of an unexpected snowfall, which hit the mountainous regions of Adjara on April 22 affected 200 hectares of vineyards, 650 hectares of walnut (of which 120 grow large varieties), as well as 600 hectares and 650 hectares of persimmon stone fruits (tkemali,)” said Bolkvadze.

According to Bolkvadze, 70 percent of those vineyards under the snow will not yield this year, walnuts will give only 20 % of the expected yield, and the persimmon do not even ripen – the trees are just green leaves.

Adjara is an autonomous republic in the southwestern corner of Georgia, bordered by Turkey to the south and the eastern end of the Black Sea.

The hectare is defined as 10,000 square metres (100 m by 100 m). An acre is about 0.4047 hectare and one hectare contains about 2.47 acres.

  1. You know, the pragmatic view on this would be that all the carbon energy offset revenues, under the new guise of “climate change” would go to assist the worlds farmers who have not otherwise recouped their losses from damages due to “climate change”. But that’s not what it’s really all about now is it?

    1. sure isnt whats its all about:-)
      revenue all the billions is quietly slid into eu imf worldbank and other slush funds, sure wont go to help anyone in need..unless the need is scare campaigns and more laws and lawyers to screw us via agenda 21 and the rest of the greentards rorts.
