"After yet another hailstorm in the Mantua area, and the serious downy mildew problems, we have lost over 200 hectares of melons, i.e. almost the entire July and August production," explains Ettore Cagna, chairman of Don Camillo. "Such a disaster means it will be very difficult for us to comply with the collection schedule arranged with our clients." "Of course we had planned our production at the beginning of the season according to different schedules and areas, but we lost practically everything this year!" "We are indeed preparing an emergency programme to try and reduce any inconvenience for our clients though," concludes Mr. Cagna. Source - FreshPLaza
