Turkey: Citrus Semi-annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2021-0022

High price increases on input costs such as electricity, fertilizer, and chemicals continue. Fertilizer prices are especially worrisome for Turkish producers, with a 60-90 percent increase in the last marketing year. In MY 2020/21, orange production is estimated to decrease 1.3 million MT, which is 23 percent lower than MY 2019/20 (1.7 million MT), due to excessive hot weather conditions in May 2020 during the blooming period of trees. In MY 2020/21, orange exports are forecast to decrease 10 percent to 263,000 MT when compared with the previous season, in correlation with low yield expectation. In MY 2020/21, Post revises tangerine production forecast to increase 14 percent to 1.6 million MT with good harvest quality due to the favorable timing of rains and temperatures. Turkish tangerine exports started well in MY 2020/21 for exports mostly to Russia, Ukraine, and Iraq and reached 890, 595 MT as of April 2021, which is 8 percent higher than the same period of the previous season.
