Re. Cumin seeds

The market is firm ;Demand is increasing there and most of it for green color materials which is very few, beside local speculators and investors want to invest in cumin, seeing the price may repeat last year Scenario, but on the other side the local offers are picking up rapidly after “Eid” and expected to be bigger next week, the issue of color is disturbing the flow of business and offers are very from low prices for damaged colors to high prices for the light green color;

Prices is increasing in slow bias, as in general the activity still limited because of the holiday and harvesting other corps, firm signs from International markets especially from India, gives the market strong support ground,

the crop is considered to be bigger but because of the rain, it’s damaged, so it’s less than normal crop, Turkish crop is coming next week, and expected to be good crop, but not with low prices,

Roads are better now and still some roads to the east side disturbed by the war and government export regulations with no change and Syrian pound still strong relatively, all ports are working fine.

Re. Anise seeds :

Market is stable; demand is increasing; harvest is almost finished, offers of both old and new crop are there, but carry over is relatively small, this year crop is a good crop but less than last year, as planted area is less than before, after E.M.C. efforts last year in promoting seeding anise without coriander, we hope this year to obtain Anise with less coriander than last year, but due to the recent rain, we are expecting to have different color of anise seeds, as some rain came at the time of harvesting, but still it’s less what we have seen in cumin, and light color anise is available with considered good quantity,

Turkish Anise crop will be harvest end of July and It’s expected to be normal crop, even with the rain which damaged the early planted areas, but hopefully the yield will be good this year,

Re. Coriander seeds:

Market is firmer, demands are there from local market, and carry over is there, but at higher prices, and the new crop was very small, and most available quantity from old crop, price is the higher, effected by local speculation and the news of the new crop, beside the firmer note from International market with less quantity available in eastern Europe, and firm prices from India, after appreciation of their currency against U.S. currency.

RE. Nigella seeds :

Market is softer after a short rally, Offers and demands are matched , but local speculators have a strong appetite for this product, to buy on dips, new crop is very small, Prices from Syria is not cheap, relatively to other origins.
