AYDIN. In a few weeks' time, the forecasts for Turkey's dried fig production in 2023 should be available. Aydin has so far been spared major weather escapades, but concerns about weather-related yield losses and quality declines remain.

Yield forecast due soon

The fig trees in Aydin are still doing well, but the weather extremes in other parts of Turkey are causing concern. Due to the increased temperatures, the fig farmers had to irrigate the acreages additionally and it is supposed to get increasingly warmer in the coming weeks as well. Sudden and violent temperature fluctuations and rainfall can endanger the yield and quality of the crop, among other things, the fruit could burst open. Field assessments are expected to start soon, which will be used as a basis for crop forecasts for the 2023/202
