MALATYA. As Turkish traders report, buying interest has lasted much longer than usual this year. While most purchases are usually completed by the end of April, demand has continued unabated until now.

Turkish market players report that demand from Europe, but also from other export destinations, remains high; this is unusual, as buyers have usually completed their orders by the end of April. However, the market is currently hit by various uncertainties. There are no more raw materials from the old crop available on the market and the volume of the new crop has not yet been announced, making it difficult for exporters to plan for the new season. According to rumours, the crop volume could be between 90,000 and 100,0
