Hops in Savinja Valley severely damaged by Sunday hail

Tabor/Žalec, 10 August - Sunday's hail storms have wreaked havoc in the Savinja Valley damaging around 80% of the hops grown in the area, meaning this year's harvest will be rather poor. Roman Žveglič, president of the Slovenian Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry (KGZS), visited the area on Tuesday, saying the chamber will call on the government for aid.
