Turkey’s hazelnut crop devastated by frost

Fears that shortage will force exodus of farmers from hazelnut-producing provinces and hit local and national economy.

This year’s hazelnut crop in Turkey has been devastated by freezing weather, which could have a serious impact on products such as confectionary.

Some officials fear that the shortage will force an exodus of farmers from the country’s hazelnut-producing provinces, which will have a negative effect on the local and national economy.
