Russia Proposes Raising Turkish Tomato Import Quota by 50,000 MT

January 31, Russia’s Agriculture Ministry proposed increasing Turkey’s tomato import quota by 50,000 MT to 200,000 MT, the RIA news agency reported.

Russia lifted a ban on vegetable imports from Turkey in November 2017 but set quotas as tensions between the two countries eased after Ankara apologized for downing a Russian military jet.
