MADRID/SACRAMENTO. While drought has become a more serious issue for this year’s almond crop in Spain, growers still need to assess the damages heavy rains and storms have wrecked in California. Exports could also be better for Spanish almonds.

Exports catch up a bit

At 10,476 mt Spain’s monthly almond exports only ranged 2.5% lower than the 10,749 mt shipped in January last year. Total exports for the season have also caught up a bit. While they still ranged nearly 9% lower in August-December 2022/2023 than in the same period in 2021/2022, this figure improved to 8% in August-January. Shipments to nearly all leading export destinations have declined with Turkey being the noted exception as shipments to here have nearly tripled to 1,665 mt. Poland and Switzerland have also stepped up buying in Spain
