Consideration upon the development of the Hungarian fruit industry with attention on changes of labour and structure of investment and in the production cost

Consideration upon the development of the Hungarian fruit industry with attention on changes of labour and structure of investment and in the production cost

In Hungary fruit growing occupies 2.4% of the total area under agricultural cultivation, and fruit production income makes up 5.3% of total agricultural income. However, as in agriculture as a whole, the number of people engaged in production is falling. In order to achieve the long-term objectives set for fruit production, a wide-ranging subsidy scheme has been developed, new orchards have been introduced, and mechanization has increased.
