MANISA. The warmer temperatures in Turkey are also heralding the start of the flowering period in the province of Manisa. However, concerns about frost and hail damage remain.

Experience shows that frost and hail damage can still occur into the first week of May, but no sudden drop in temperature is currently expected. Nevertheless, it cannot be ruled out, according to market players.

According to experts, the buds on the vines are limited, but this is not yet a cause
