Commodity and export prices decline
The Turkish apricot market remains quiet. Farmers have received some enquiries from large exporters, but since growers are hoping that prices will rise significantly in spring at the latest, they are hesitant to sell, so that few deals actually materialise. This is having the opposite effect, at least at present, and is causing both commodity and export prices to fall slightly. There is likely to be little change here in the coming weeks. Dried apricots, no 2 are currently at TRY 90-95/kg.
