MALATYA. Weather conditions are still highly favourable in Turkey and the prospects for dried apricots could hardly be better. Farmers must, however, react quickly.

No price slumps

Favourable weather conditions have prevailed in recent weeks and temperatures are forecast at 11-29C (52-82F) in the next few days. The apricots are making very good progress and if this situation continues there should be no problem at all with the new crop. Normal as things may be, the market is still monitoring the weather closely. Issue is that partial rains and local hailstorms may cause some blemishes such as spots or freckles. This will, however, have no impact on yields or the quality of the crop and no damages have been reported so far.
