AYDIN. The rains over the last few weeks provide excellent conditions for the development of the fig trees. Raw dried fig supplies, however, continue to dwindle.

Supplies are running low

Rain and snow have eased some concerns over too dry conditions. More rain is, however, required. Growers and traders only hold limited raw dried fig supplies and whoever is able to is speculating on a rise in price. On top of this, the lira has gained in value and prices are up. Commodity exchange prices have risen by TRY 4-5/kg to TRY 15-41/kg in Aydin depending on size and quality. Export prices have even risen by USD 200-500/mt and Lerida no 4 dried figs are trading at USD 4.80/kg FOB Izmir. Prices range USD 1.50/kg higher than this time
