AYDIN. Farmers have started harvesting figs in some parts of Turkey. Buyers are, meanwhile, urged to be patient in waiting for prices for the new crop to be issued.

Rain said to have impaired quality

Harvesting has started in some parts of Aydin. Last week's heavy rains have, reportedly, impacted the quality of some of the fruits. Production is expected to fall short of the 90,000 mt harvested last year. Exect production estimates have still to be issued. Although the TMO intends to intervene in the market it remains unclear when the state-owned organisation will start to buy dired figs and at what prices. Export prices for the new crop will be issued next week at the earliest. Prices continue to vary considerably for last year
