What has happened to the Russian market?
I’ve noticed a lot of 80-100cm roses available.April 29, 2014 at 12:09 am #5667
First it was all about the Ukraine crisis.
Secondly some guys said the exchange rate was too bad.
Then we thought it was the orthodox lent.
Now we have no idea any more.
Fact is that the russian market is DOWN, growers that specialize there are in troubles and have no idea what to do. Thanks God there is no overproduction now.April 29, 2014 at 12:56 pm #5670
RC, Ukrainian situation has affected but Russian and other ex-soviet countries are still buying. This week might be slow as customs in plenty of countries might not work due to Labor Day. The “Russian Market” is still there. Anyhow, growers are diversifying their sales and exploring more nontraditional markets.
