MALATYA. The flowering period is postponed due to heavy snowfall and night frosts in the growing regions - producers see this as a positive sign. The weak Turkish lira is causing export prices to fall.

Hardly any industrial goods left

The heavy snowfalls that started last week in Malatya are keeping the growers busy this week as well. The night frost in particular is delaying the flowering phase in Turkey's most important apricot-growing region. However, farmers report that this situation is favourable for the development of the apricots, as it reduces the likelihood of sudden frosts hitting the delicate flowers.

Farmgate prices remain at the level of TRY 70-75/kg, but market players explained that hardly any industrial goods are still available.
