Iran is home to only 0.3% of the world’s green houses, according to the director of the Greenhouses, Medicinal Plants and Mushroom Department of the Agriculture Ministry. Last year’s figures show there were more than 10,000 hectares of greenhouses under cultivation across the country, Seyyed Mohammad Kiyaee says, adding that there is need to increase the land area to 48,355 hectares over 10 years. According to First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri, one of the main priorities of the government in the current fiscal year that started in March is to develop industrial greenhouses. “This method of agriculture would help create jobs and conserve both water and soil,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA.
