Fruit and grape producers in South Moravia are starting to try and put a cost on the possible damage from severe frosts which occurred on Thursday night. Temperatures fell to minus three degrees Celsius in some parts of the region though growers said there were many local differences in the severity of the possible damage. Growers made last minute attempts to curb the expected damage with protective coverings and fires. Initial estimates say the damage to the fruit crop could come to hundreds of millions of crowns but it could take a week or 10 days for a more precise figure to be arrived at.
