MALATYA. Temperatures of over 40°C are expected in the growing regions this week, which will have a positive effect on the development of the fruits. Meanwhile, farmers are worried about their harvest workers who cannot enter the province due to pandemic-related measures.

No official estimates yet

The growing areas in Malatya are expecting a hot week with temperatures above 40°C, which should have a very favourable effect on the development of the apricots. The harvest will reach its peak in the coming weeks, but so far the Ministry of Agriculture has not given any information regarding the crop size. This makes it difficult for exporters to calculate prices for the new crop. Although there are already some price indications from individual market players, the majority prefers to wait and see and not take any risks. Unofficial&nb
