MANISA. Damage evaluation in the Turkish sultana growing regions is still ongoing. Rain and cool temperatures are delaying the process. Meanwhile, market players expect the TMO to push its commodity sales further after Ramadan.

Cool weather causes delays

The determination of frost damage in the Turkish province of Manisa has not yet been completed. Due to the rainy weather and cool temperatures, bud formation on the vines is delayed, which is an important factor in the damage evaluation. Farmers still have until the end of this week to report to the official authorities, only then will a clearer picture emerge of the impact the cold weather has had on yields. Currently, no more night frost is forecast, but the risk remains until the first week of May.
