AYDIN. Sultana growers are still waiting, while the Tariş purchase price for dried figs has been announced by now. The prices, however, are not in line with expectations.

Tariş prices are too low

According to market players, the Tariş has now announced its purchase prices for dried figs from this year's crop. However, the producers' expectations could not be met. The Tariş is said to be willing to pay TRY 36/kg for Grade A1 dried figs (36-40 pcs./100 g), and TRY 30/kg for Grade A4 goods (51-55 pcs./100 g). This means that the offers are significantly below the current market price of about TRY 41/kg. Traders therefore reckon that farmers will prefer to sell into the free market, as they can achieve higher prices here.
