The olive fly has returned in a big way to Tuscany during late summer of 2016 due to mild temperatures and humidity.

Because of this, the olive harvest is expected to decrease to the level of 70% of what was gathered in 2015. The situation is not nearly as diastrous as 2015, although prices have already registered a 14% increase on a national level in the past week.
