AYDIN. In the past weeks, experts had closely examined the fig plantations in Turkey in order to be able to estimate the crop volume as well as the quality of the fruits. These studies have now been completed.

Official data to follow next week

Turkish market players report that the surveys of fig orchards as part of the crop estimates have now been completed. Rumour has it that the production volume will be between 70,000 and 80,000 mt, but the Ministry of Agriculture is expected to announce the exact figures next week. No abnormalities have been reported regarding the quality of the new crop, but it is still too early to make any binding statements, as the harvesting process has only just begun.
