Iran: Exporting tomatoes to Qatar

Agricultural Manager Isa Mohammad-Doost said Sunday that the quality tomatoes harvested in the Bushehr province will be exported to neighbouring Qatar. Iran was already exporting tomatoes to the neighbouring countries of Iraq and Afghanistan over land, but this year this produce will be exported to neighbouring Qatar by sea.

Mohammad-Doost put the tomato acreage in this area at 5,300 ha and predicted that 240,000 tons of quality tomatoes will be produced in this province.

According to a mehrnews.com article, he also claimed that: “the Dayyer sub-province is the main hub of the out of season tomato cultivation; some 10,000 farmers are busy working in this sector, both seasonally and permanently.”
