- I have few plantations of apricots on around four hectares and I noticed a dozen of flowers these days. That certainly worries me because this fruit can't blossom twice, and these flowers will be killed by the first frost - Danilovic said for the Voice of Western Serbia.

He said that he luckily noticed that there is a high level of moisture only in a part of the plantation, due to underground waters.

In Cacak institute for Agriculture, they say that fruits should be in winter sleep in this period.

They warn that if high temperatures continue, that could lead to a sudden stop of winter rest, first of all, in apricot. This period is very unstable for them and short.

- Due to early entry into the period of vegetation, subsequent frosts can lead to damage to apricot, Nebojsa Milosevic said from the Institute for Voice of Western Serbia.

According to him, people who grow fruit are simply helpless in these kinds of situations.
