Not a lot of movement is seen on the Turkish market. Availability of good quality kernels is very limited. The number of active processors is coming down.
The quiet market in combination with TMO whom stopped making appointments with farmers, is resulting in a slow market. The total volume of the 2017 crop remains questionable, as do the opening prices of the market. The recent weather conditions are seen as favorable for the crop development, especially the heavy rains which refreshed the orchards and had a positive impact on the cleaning of the fungus disease.
