MANISA. Patience is required as revised production estimates for sultanas will only be issued after the Eid holidays, which will take place in Turkey from 29 June to 1 July. Not everyone is keen on taking risks regarding quotations for the new crop.

Weather to get better

While rain was reported in many parts of Manisa last week, conditions are set to improve. Temperatures will finally rise again this week and although the weather is supposed to remain cloudy, more rain has not been forecast. Many businesses will, however, close for Eid al-Adha, the Islamic Festival of the Sacrifice, at the end of June, which will interrupt trading for around four days. Expectation is that revised production estimates, which will consider the impact of the recent rains and floods, will be issued in around two to three weeks.
