Turquía/Nueces: Producción disminuirá 8% en año comercial 2017/18
Walnuts are grown throughout almost all parts of the country. Due to a hotter summer season than normal, quality of walnuts also has been partly affected in the orchards located especially in central Anatolia and some part of South East Anatolia. Post forecasts an 8 percent decline in walnut production at 58,000 MT in MY 2017, down from 63,000 MT last year. This amount is far below the amount needed to meet walnut consumption needs of Turkey. Post forecasts that walnut imports will continue due to the insufficient production and high quality walnut demand in the Turkish market.
