Iran to transfer vegetable farms to greenhousesIran's Ministry of Agriculture announced the transfer of all vegetable farms to greenhouses within the next 10 years.
The area under greenhouse cultivation in Iran presently spans 12,157 hectares, 38 percent higher compared to mid-2013 when President Hassan Rouhani took office, said Valiollah Bani-Ameri, executive of the Greenhouse Expansion Project undertaken by the Ministry of Agriculture.
The ministry plans to increase the country's greenhouse area to more than 48,000 hectares by the end of the 20-Year Vision Plan (2005-25), Bani-Ameri was quoted as saying.
The official noted that the ministry expects to produce 21 million tons of agro products in greenhouses per year when the project is completed.
