Droughts in Eastern Europe

A severe drought in Eastern Europe has damaged crops and raised concerns over the area’s economy. Eastern Europe is a big producer of wild-harvested summer truffles, and we have noticed a steep decline in harvests this season. There are worries that the prolonged drought could also impact next year’s harvest, which will inevitably push up the prices for the summer truffle. Luckily the summer truffle is very drought tolerant and should recover well, but in the meantime we will be looking at higher than usual prices for the delicacy.
