TEHRAN. Temperatures have declined sharply in some parts of Iran over the last few days. Some provinces have even experienced heavy snow. Frost damages have been reported in some of the fig orchards, especially in the North Khorasan province.

Surprisingly stable prices

The North Khorasan Agriculture Jihad Organization, for instance, states frost damage has occurred on 2,540 hectares and that snow has adversely impacted all orchards. However, the exact extent of the damage will only emerge over the next few weeks. Since supply and demand are well balanced the prices have remained surprisingly stable. Market players, nevertheless, expect prices to rise over the next few weeks as the full extent of the damage becomes apparent.
