In China, rain has deterred more production of new oil. Early season oil was low in Geraniol, not more than 4%, so carryover at 6% was priced much higher. Reports indicate demand is low, indicating buyers awaiting better quality. The Egyptians watching Chinese prices have started to raise prices themselves, claiming crop is not as large as last year and carryover gone.
