BUDAPEST – Farmers are waiting for some rain in Hungary. Without rain, the husk of the walnut can not burst and there is the possibility to dry on the shell, which will cause problems in the cleaning-washing procedure. A lack of rain during the riping interval brought concerns about the size of inshell walnuts. The vast majority of the new crop is expected max. 32-34. The 36+ size will be a question.

Many hope that the Ukrainian traders will come up with their benchmark price this week, but it is more possible that the new Ukrainian prices will appear only in the first week of October. At the same time, the slight price increase is a topic among market players.
