Poland's blueberry crop for 2008 is set to reach one of its highest recorded levels, according to forecasts from the country's Horticultural Economics Department of IAFE-NRI.

The forecast estimates that blueberry volumes will rise to 8,000 tonnes this year, which represents an increase of around 50 per cent compared to 2007.

The reason for such a dramatic rise is reported to be a recent increase in the country's production area, which has grown from 1,300ha in 2005 to 2,500ha in 2008.

In addition, productivity is up, at 3.2 tonnes per hectare, compared with 2.6 tonnes per hectare in the previous year.
