Cold weather destroyed a lot of agricultural
greenhouses in Albania, increasing the prices for fruits and vegetables with
nearly 50% within few days.
According to the dealers, domestic production has
decreased drastically, increasing prices. "There is no more country production
due to the icy weather," said another trader.
"Almost 90 per cent of all greenhouses were
demolished," he added.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the cold
has damaged over 200 hectares of greenhouses, mostly with vegetables of the
season, but also other cultures.
