What kind of raspberry crop is expected and are raspberry growers worried about this season? What will the purchase price be? “red gold” to be for 2023 has been speculated for some time. Tons of last year’s raspberry crop are still in cold storage. However, there is already talk about the price for this season and according to the estimates of some experts, the purchase price of “red gold” will not exceed 300 dinars, and may be much lower. If something is sold, it will be at a considerable price at a lower price than the one that the cold stores paid to the producers last year.
Both are waiting for this year’s harvest with fear because there are few buyers, and export to the European market is smaller by as much as 50%. The Committee for Agriculture lobbied the Ministry and the National Bank to reprogram the debt of commercial banks from six to 12 monthswith the obligation to use that money to pay the producer’s debts.
Milovan Jakovljević, MP and member of the Committee for Agriculture: “These days we expect the Ministry of Economy implement the action through the Development Fund, that these people who are not in debt and need money, receive funds from the Development Fund at favorable interest rates of 1% to 2% annually, and I am convinced that this will happen these days”. Jakovljević believes that at a time when there are more and more Ukrainian, Mexican and Chilean raspberries in Europe, Serbia must promote Serbian raspberries through its embassies and find new markets.
It is still too early to predict what the season will be like, raspberry growers are hoping for the best. Most workers come from the south of the country, from Vranje, Surdulica and Bujanovac. People of different professions and ages come, high school students, teachers, unemployed. Men and women are equally interested.
The Ministry of Agriculture says that on the threshold of the new season should deal with a new organization, so as not to enter the export blockade again.
