Apple / None fruit selection is also flooded Nagano Suzaka Oct. 16 14:15

Due to the impact of Typhoon No. 19, JA's fruit selection in Suzaka City was also damaged by flooding, making it impossible to sort special apples and nothing.

The “JA Nagano Sudaka Fruit Center” in Kosaka, Suzaka City is sorting fruits, but it was damaged by flooding up to 30 cm above the floor of the facility.

As a result, about 10 tons of special apples and nails brought in by farmers are trapped in the muddy water and can no longer be shipped.

Devices that control power supplies and belt conveyors for moving various machines are also stuck in the water and are stuck.

Although the water at the selection yard was already drained, on the 16th, employees carried out apples that could no longer be shipped and washed dirty containers.

According to the Sudaka Fruit Center, it will take about two weeks before sorting operations such as apples can be resumed.

“It was very disappointing that there was damage, but I couldn't help but drag. I want to do my best to be able to resume it in early November.”
