AYDIN/TEHRAN. Since last Friday, dried figs from this year's crop can officially be exported from Turkey and the first two export days proved to be successful.

Commodity prices increase

In the Turkish province of Aydin, about 7 million fig trees are cultivated on almost 37,500 ha, which is about 70% of the country's plantations. Organic farming is practised on about one third of the land in Aydin. Like many other Turkish dried fruit, this year's fig crop suffered from unfavourable weather conditions. Dried fruit are an important export good for Turkey. As a result of the quality deficiencies and lower yields, not to mention higher production costs, prices increased significantly compared to last year.
