The influence of hail suppression by silver iodide seeding on the trend in the number of hail days (hail trend) in the Republic of Serbia was studied in 3 cases in periods whith or without hail suppression : (1) in Vojvodina region, Northern Province of Serbia (2) in Serbia proper (Serbia without the Provinces), and (3) on the two adjacent territories of Vojvodina and Serbia without the Provinces. The hail trend in Serbia was calculated on the basis of all observed data from all synoptic and climatological stations for the period 1967 to 2009. The results associate hail suppression with the stagnation of the hail trend rather than its decrease, and show that hail suppression did not have statistically unique influence on the hail trend
