Land under wheat cultivation in Iran has reached 6 million hectares in the current cultivation season (started late September of 2019), according to latest data released by the Agriculture Ministry.
Ali Qoli Imani, the head of National Wheat Farmers Empowerment Foundation, says the Agriculture Ministry’s data show this year 2 million hectares of the grain have been cultivated on irrigated land and 4 million hectares on rain-fed land, Young Journalists Club reported.
This year, land under wheat cultivation almost equals the area that went under cultivation last year, which means production will likely remain the same as last year.
