Need for Rice Imports at 1m Tons p.a.

Iran’s need for rice imports stands at 1 million tons annually, says deputy agriculture minister. “Domestic demand is about 3 million tons per year, while production stands at 2 million,” Ali Qanbari was also quoted as saying by IRNA. The government imposes a ban on rice imports every year during the harvest season to support local farmers. Rice is a staple food in Iran.
