A wheat silo with a storage capacity of 100,000 tons will be inaugurated in Semnan Province’s Garmsar County by the end of the current Iranian year on March 20, 2021. 
This will be the largest silo in the eastern part of the country, according to the CEO of Government Trading Corporation.
“The Islamic Development Bank and the Iranian government have invested €18.96 million, in addition to 190 billion rials [over $658,000] in the project respectively,” Yazdan Seif was also quoted as saying by ILNA.
The official noted that the silo, which has made 90% physical progress, has been built on a 10-hectare plot and will be a great help in the storage and distribution of this strategic staple food in the country. 
A contract was signed in June for the construction of another silo with the capacity to store 30,000 tons of grains in the northern Amirabad Port.
