BUDAPEST – There is no change in the conditions of walnut plantations in Hungary this week. The walnuts are developing well, and the only thing that means a problem in the coming months is the walnut husk fly. More and more pesticide has come on the market against the insect, which is helpful in conventional plants, but 100% solution is not on the table regarding the bio plantations because the farmers are not calm.
