Iran: Annual horticulture export increases

One of the sectors that experienced export growth in the past Iranian calendar year 1401 (which ended on March 20) was the country's horticulture sector. Mojtabi Shadlou, a board member of Iran's Gardeners Union, says about the increase in exports in this area: "In the past year, natural factors threatened our production in the horticulture sector, but fortunately, since we have reached stability in terms of the production of horticultural products, these threats could not create a disruption in the market."

Iran is the largest producer of garden products in the region, according to the chairman of the Iran Fruit Union. Referring to the necessity of adopting a policy to increase exports, Reza Nourani said: "Given the country's high capacities, we are the first in the region in the production of agricultural and horticultural products."

Mentioning the country's high potential in the production of agricultural products, he stated: "Iran is a country suffering from water scarcity, and we have gone through several consecutive years of drought. However, we have the first place in the production of agricultural products in the region."

According to Mohammad-Mehdi Boroumandi, the deputy agriculture minister for horticulture affairs, Iran has a special position in the field of horticulture.
