MANISA. While the TMO has announced a bid for sultanas produced this year, official production estimates are still to be issued. Although growers were expecting higher prices, exporters should be able to profit from the TMO bid.

Rain and cool nights in Manisa

Heavy rain has been reported in Turkey. While daytime temperatures range at 32C (89.9F), nighttime temperatures range as low as 16-18C (60.8-64.4F). Fortunately the rain has not had an impact on drying in Manisa so far. Although more rain has been forecast this week, it should be noted that drying is mainly complete meaning that the impact should be limited. Production estimates for raisins and sultanas range at 350,000 mt, which is similar to last year.
