AYDIN. The 40th International Nut and Dried Fruit Congress is being held in London this week, where crop estimates for various nuts and dried fruit are also being discussed. Meanwhile, the market is not entirely carefree about the coming season.

Wait and see

As in many other areas of Turkey, the weather in the fig region of Aydin remained cool and cloudy for longer than average. There are no signs of negative effects yet, but this can only be said with certainty after the pollination phase, when the fruit sets develop. Even now, it does not get warmer than 22-31°C during the day and it is mostly cloudy with occasional rain showers.
