AYDIN. Rain has hampered the fertilization of the fig trees. The dired fig producers will therefore launch...

... another attempt over the next few days. Ideal conditions are provided at temperatures ranging at 35-38 C. Temperatures currently are, however, much cooler than this. Market players are cocnerned that production will be smaller this year, which may prompt prices to rise. Limited supplies, especially for large dried fruits, have already driven up the export prices. The prices on offer can differ by as much as several hundred dollars per tonne depending on in how far traders still have free positions or have to rely on current farmgate prices.
