Turkey: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2022-0052

In MY 2022/23, all citrus production in Turkiye is expected to decrease due to freezing weather conditions in March 2022 at the beginning of the blossoming period. Retail prices are expected to increase for MY 2022/23 due to low yields and high farmgate prices as a result of increasing input costs for fertilizers, fuel, disinfestation, packaging and transportation. Later maturing varieties with thicker skin, are easier to transport longer distances and are often sold to export markets. MY 2022/23 citrus exports, except tangerines, will decrease in correlation with the lower yields and lower demand from the European Union due to the economic recession. However Turkish exporters believe that demand from Russia, Ukraine, and Middle Eastern countries will remain the same.
