Tunisia’s agricultural exports to Libya through Ras Jedir border crossing rose to 3,727 tons in July, up 23% on July 2020.
This is the result of watermelon exports edging up 212%, said the National Observatory of Agriculture (French: ONAGRI).
Meanwhile, exports of grapes, tomatoes and almonds fell 72%, 63% and 59%, respectively. This drop is caused by higher local prices compared to Libya’s.
Actually, the prices of grapes, peaches and plums rose 28%, 15% and 14%, respectively, in July at Bir Al Kasaa wholesale market.
