AYDIN. Growers in Aydin are still confronted with drought-like conditions. Farmers are concerned that the current weather situation will prompt a sharp decline in production. Dried fig exporters are also confronted with problems.

Lack of rainfall

Market players in Turkey report that demand for dried figs continues to be good. Only problem is that precipitation is so low in Aydin that there is a real risk of a drought. As this condition may very well cut production sharply some exporters are holding back supplies and prefer to wait. Raw material prices range firm at TRY 25-30/kg. Export prices are also firm with Lerida no 2 dried figs trading at USD 5.25/kg FOB Izmir. Prices, however, differ considerably depending on supplier.
