due to challenging weather conditions in late spring / summer, crop was estimated to be approximately 20% lower than last year. Prices are relatively stable, but oil and fruit prices are expected to increase slightly over next few months
Some reports state that this year’s crop will be 10% larger than that of last years. Even if this is the case though, it would be considered 20% smaller than “normal.” Preliminary results indicate a yield of 5.3-5.5kg per ton of fruit, up from last year’s yield of 4.5kg/ton. Prices should be stable.
