California raisin growers are expected to harvest about 270,000 tons of raisins this year, according to a preliminary estimate from the Raisin Administrative Committee in Fresno.
The preliminary estimate – about 20 percent lower than last year’s 336,000 tons – was prepared in anticipation of the International Dried Grape Conference being held in China this week.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is moving forward with new grading standards for processed raisins.
The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) announced Wednesday slight changes to the raisin standards as part of an effort to remove offensive language from the text of the previous rule.
The USDA will remove all references to “midget” raisins.
The changes go into effect in 30 days.
The new crop is short and the overall situation has increased the demand on all varieties including Thompson Raisins, Jumbo Flame Raisins, and Golden Raisins.
The offers from Chile are on hike and producers are not too eager to sell at this time. Offers are made for few loads at a time and for short position.

Accelerated by EEC regulation of lower chloryphos limit starting from 10th of August, export
sales jumped up. As a result, prices of the very limited unsold farmer stocks
went up daily during the second half of May.
Chilean raisin prices have been increasing since last week and are expected to rise further in the coming weeks, due to the rainfall during harvest and crop damage.
Although the reports are indicating minor damages has been incurred.

Changes have been made to the maximum residue levels allowed of certain chemicals found on imported products
The European Union has announced the amendment of maximum residue levels (MRLs) for pesticide residues in a number of different products.
Inspection and certification group SGS reported that, in January, the EU announced four Commission regulations amending Annexes II, III and V of Directive 2005/396/EC of the European Parliament, and of the Council, with regard to maximum residue levels for pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin.
Amendments include changes to MRLs for chlorpyrifos in mandarins, apples, pears, peaches, table grapes, blackberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, kiwifruit, pineapples, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, melons, watermelons, whole cabbage, chinese cabbage, globe artichokes, leek and sugarbeets, which will be applied from 10 August this year.
The changes mean that EU member states can take and analyse samples for the pesticide/product combinations and the number of samples of each product, including foods for infants and small children and products originating from organic farming, SGS noted.
A recent spell of hailstorm and rains in some parts of Maharashtra over the last three days has hit raisin producers hard.

A recent spell of hailstorm and rains in some parts of Maharashtra over the last three days has hit raisin producers hard. Farmers in Sangli, one of the biggest raisin production centres in the state, are unhappy with the rains that have come at an inopportune time, when the raisins were in the process of being dried.
“This will definitely affect the overall quality of the raisins, which lose color due to the rains and as a result, the price gets affected as well,” Subhash Arve, president, Maharashtra State Grape Growers Association (MGGA), who looks after the Sangli region, said. Prices of raisins which were around Rs 200-250 per kg, have dropped almost 50% as the raisins are turning black, he said. Farmers are now getting just about Rs 70-80 per kg for their produce. Warehouses where the raisins were being dried have been damaged causing water to seep in, which reduces the sugar content of the product. Around 40,000 tonne of raisins were expected this season, but the impact will now have to be seen in the next few days, he said.
