A DEADLY virus has decimated courgette crops in Andalucia, resulting in losses of up to €30 million.

Courgette growers – primarily in Almeria – had a miserable harvest due to the New Delhi virus, worsened by flash flooding across the region.

Production is down 8% and farmers are losing €5,000 per hectare dedicated to courgettes.

In total 343 million kilos have been produced this year from 7,116 hectares.
