- Almonds -It is reported that there is a 90%+ chance for there to be substantial rains in the coming months along the west coast of the Americas and as a consequence of the El Nino weather phenomenon. The timing of which could be critical to the almond harvest.
- Sultanas – The main focus for sultanas remains on Turkey and how this season is starting to look to pan out.
- Apricots – Still with no adverse weather reported over this most critical phase of the drying process, we have every faith that the new crop can still achieve 100,000mts or at least, just under.
- Brazils – A combination of demand and weather – as well as the likelihood of a firmer USD in the medium to longer term, would suggest firmer prices on-going.
