MANISA. While Turkey's sultana market is slowly reviving after last week's holiday, attention has shifted to the new crop. Warm weather should benefit the grapes in the next few days.

Sharp decline in exports

Exports were sluggish last week. While weekly exports of seedless dried raisins ranged at 4,401 mt last year, they slumped to 921 last week, which is an 80% decline. This has, by contrast, failed to impact the export performance for the season. Turkey has exported 222,472 mt this season so far, whereas exports ranged below 200,000 mt last year.
