Agriculture / fruit-growing
Dutch term or phrase: het rooien van areaal
This season's apple production in the EU-25 will be down by 5% on last year apparently.

Vooral de hittegolven van juli en het rooien van areaal zorgen voor een daling van de appelproductie in Spanje (-21%), Frankrijk (-10%)....

I think this has to mean that land that was once used to cultivate apples has been dug up and used for something else. Searching for the right phrase.

Growers are finding it hard to settle for a few hundred dollars from each acre of apples when they could earn thousands by selling their land for development, Robinson said.

agricultural area clearing


Explanation:
When searching Eurodicautom, I found "land clearing" for "rooien". Perhaps you can translate it as "agricultural area clearing" ?

If it has to do with using the soil for other cultivations, maybe you can use something like a "change in soil destination". It's just an idea...
