Iran: Greenhouse products output to be increased by 4 times

As announced by a provincial official, the amount of products produced in the greenhouses of Kermanshah province will be increased by four times over the next three years.

Ali Chaleh-Chaleh, the head of the province's Agriculture Department, also announced that the area under greenhouse cultivation will be increased to 220 hectares in Kermanshah by the next three years as a result of projects being implemented in the province. In early July, the director of the Agriculture Ministry's Greenhouse Development Program announced that 23,000 hectares of land are under greenhouse cultivation throughout the country.

Mehdi Lotfi-Zadeh also said that 150,000 hectares of new greenhouses are planned to be set up in the country during a five-year program based on the Seventh National Development Plan. As stated by the deputy agriculture minister, the development of greenhouse cultivation is a major policy of the Agriculture Ministry.

In this regard, several projects have been defined and introduced to the banks, and as soon as the notification is made, the projects will receive facilities, and their implementation will begin, the official added. In recent years, the water crisis has caused serious challenges in Iran's agriculture sector.

To solve this problem, several solutions, including the implementation of pressurized irrigation projects and greenhouse cultivation, have been emphasized by experts and officials in this sector. Iranian Agriculture Ministry's Greenhouse Development Program is one of the priority projects of this ministry, which aims at increasing productivity, efficiency, and water consumption management in the agriculture sector.
