Great difference in yields
Although the total cultivation area spans 51,260 ha, it only comprises 41,190 ha fertile land in Fars Province. And yet, the province stands out because as much as 91.7% of the figs produced here are rainfed, whereas only 13.1% require irrigation. Yields between these two varieties differ considerably with yields only ranging at 0.97 mt/ha for rainfed figs and at a much higher 4.5 mt/ha for irrigated figs.
Lorestan province may be the second most important producer after Fars province but only accounts for 19.1% or 18,392 mt of Ira
