A normal crop will exceed last year’s record as new plants come into production. It should reach 2.3 billion of tons except unforeseen on the harvest. The drought that had not been completely overtaken comes into the ball again.

Currently, Spain which has very limited demands and cause s a weak/stable market share about €5.40 for the Valencia fob/fot delivery.
The GUARAS have increased the gap from Valencia at € 0.20 or €5.60 for GUARAS 34/36 and €5.80 for GUARAS 36/38.
