Table description


This table provides information on the harvest of apples and pears in the Netherlands. It concerns the harvest of apples and pears and the corresponding cultivation area (broken down by variety and fruit cultivation area).
From 2016 it is mandatory for growers to participate in the survey. The response is therefore higher than in previous years, which can lead to breaks in the trend.

Data available from 1997 to 2017.

Status of the figures:
The figures for the years 1997 to 2016 are final, and the figures for 2017 are provisional. Due to the discontinuation, the provisional figures will not become definite.

Changes as of 12 April 2019:
None, this table has been discontinued.

When will new figures be published?
Not. This table has been discontinued.

Description topics
