Iran's date production is expected to reach 1.2 million tons in the current fiscal year (started March 21) to register an over 30% growth compared with last year, the chairman of the National Association of Iranian Dates said.
"We owe this increase in production to favorable climate this year," Mohsen Rashid Farrokhi was also quoted as saying by Young Journalists Club.
According to the official, date exports earned Iran more than $500 million last year (March 2018-19).
Siamak Shahriari, a senior member of Dried Fruits and Nuts Exporters’ Association, said 70-80% of dates produced in Iran are consumed domestically and 20-30% are exported.
