MALATYA. Although weather conditions are presently ideal for the development of the fruits in Malatya, certain risks prevail. Ramadan has given Turkey's dried apricot exports a lift.

Weekly exports pick up

Exports have risen as pre-Ramadan demand is up in the Middle East. Turkey shipped 1,745 mt of dried apricots and related products overseas in the week ending on 22 January. This is clearly up on the 1,212 mt registered in the same week last year. At 46,455 mt total exports, however, range 4,000 mt lower this season so far than in the same period last year.
