MANISA/TEHRAN. Although drying has finally been completed in Turkey, growers are not really interested in selling their sultanas to traders. Internet blackouts have disrupted economic activities in Iran.

Growers prefer to sell to TMO

With daytime temperatures ranging at 25-30C (77-86F) the weather was warmer than anticipated in Manisa last week and no rainfalls were witnessed. This enabled prodcuers to finally complete drying. The prices offered by the TMO and in the free market still differ widely. Producers, who can afford to wait, certainly prefer to sell to the state-run organisation. Reports state that the TMO has stepped up buying and is presently purchasing up to 200 mt of sultanas per day. The TMO will continue to buy until the end of December.
