Iran's Agricultural Yields Expected to Increase by 3 Million Tons Iran's Agricultural Yields Expected to Increase by 3 Million Tons

Agricultural yields are expected to increase by 3 million tons, thanks to the good rainfall recorded in the current Iranian year (started March 20). 
Unlike last year, when downpours and floods caused significant losses to farmers, the precipitation registered in arid and semi-arid provinces is expected to lead to a bumper harvest this year. 
Out of nearly 18 million hectares of Iranian farmlands, 12 million hectares are rain-fed. The impact of rainfalls is more significant in the arid areas of central, southern, eastern and southeastern regions struggling with water shortages, drought and extended dry seasons since most of their farms are rain-fed.
