AYDIN. Market players in Turkey are having difficulties meeting the increasing demand, as there are hardly any goods available. The development of the new harvest, however, looks rather promising.

Rising demand from overseas

Turkish exporters report increasing buying interest from overseas, but face the problem that a large part of the goods have already been sold off and it is hard to find suitable products on the open market. Weather conditions are favourable for the development of the new crop and fruit set should begin to form in May. Farmgate prices have increased slightly and are in the range of TRY 25-30/kg, while export prices are largely stable. Dried figs, Lerida, no 2 are at USD 5,250/mt FOB Izmir as last week.
