MANISA/TEHRAN. In the growing regions around the city of Manisa, hailstorms have surprised the green-budding vines. Market players hope for a moderate level of damage.

Traders remain cautiously optimistic

Weather services had actually predicted frost for the Aegean region only from the second half of this week, but there was a local drop in temperature already at the beginning of the week. This was accompanied by precipitation in the form of rain and hail showers. Some of the vineyards suffered damage, although market players are still cautious about the actual consequences for sultana production. There is still a chance that the losses due to frost and hail will be limited. A reliable forecast can only be expected at the end
