HALF CLARE'S VINE CROP RUINED Disastrous Frost LOSS £30,000 TO £50,000 As the result of severe frosts during the week-end, 50 to 60 per cent, of the vine and fruit crops in the Clare district has been de stroyed. The damage extended through the whole valley, from Clare as far as Auburn. The vineyards suffered the heaviest damage, the shoots on the vines being short and tender. Unless fresh shoots appear the crop is almost totally ruined. Vegetable gardens and orchards were also frostbitten, early vegetables being killed. The frost was most severe in the valley. Vineyards and orchards on the hillsides reported com paratively slight damage. A similar frost occurred last year, but the vine shoots were then farther advanced. Although it is impos sible to gauge accurately the extent of the damage at this stage, the re cent cold weather is considered to have resulted in a loss to the 200 growers in the district of between £30.000 and £50.000.
