REUS/TEHRAN. Numerous new date orchards in the growing countries ensure that global production for the 2021/22 season will increase despite higher pest infestation. This is partly thanks to private investors.

Financial support enables more orchards

According to the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council (INC), global date production will increase from 1.002 million mt to about 1.114 million mt in the 2021/22 season. This is mainly due to the large number of new orchards in the growing countries of North Africa and the Middle East, made possible by the support of private investors and regional authorities. The most important producing country remains Saudi Arabia with an estimated 215,000 mt, followed by Iran (145,000 mt) and the United Arab Emirates (140,000 mt).
