1,000 Hectares of Greenhouses Authorized

The Ministry of Agriculture has authorized the establishment of greenhouses extending over 1,000 hectares so far in the current Iranian year (started March 20, 2016), says deputy agriculture minister for horticultural affairs, Mohammad Ali Tahmasebi.
“Plans are underway to add 500 more hectares to the figure,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA 
However, Seyyed Mohammad Kiyaei, director of the Greenhouses, Medicinal Plants and Mushroom Department of Agriculture Ministry, said Iran is home to only 0.3% of the world’s greenhouses. 
“Last year’s figures show more than 10,000 hectares of greenhouses had undertaken cultivation across the country,” he said, adding that such land area need to increase to 48,355 hectares over 10 years.
