Apple Production in Switzerland

Apple production in Switzerland amounted to 222.8 thousand tonnes in 2015, declining by -3.7% against the previous year level. Overall, the apple output pursued a pronounced decline from 2007 to 2015. The trend pattern, however, indicated some noticable fluctuations throughout the analyzed period. The total output figures decreased at an average annual rate of -2.7%. This general negative trend was largely conditioned by a noticeable curtailment of the harvested area and a noticeable contraction of the yield figures.

The growth pace was the most rapid in 2011, when the output figure increased by +62% from the previous year level. In that year, the apple production in Switzerland attained its maximum volume of 327.5 thousand tonnes. From 2012 to 2015, the apple output in growth failed to regain its strength.
