AYDIN. Due to good demand and high commodity prices, many Turkish farmers have already sold a large part of their new crop. Available goods in export quality are therefore becoming scarce.

Steady pace of exports

After a promising start to the new export season, Turkish market players report that demand remains good and exports have reached a steady pace. Last week, for example, 3,189 mt of dried figs and fig products were shipped overseas, compared to only 2,391 mt in the corresponding week last year. Total exports since the start of the season at this time last year were 10,862 mt, well above the 8,971 mt shipped so far this season, but it should be noted that the 2020 export season started two weeks earlier.
