TEHRAN. The unfavourable weather conditions this year caused Iranian pistachio production to decline by about a quarter. Nevertheless, market players are satisfied with the development of exports this season.

Crop down by a quarter

Unfavourable weather conditions such as drought significantly reduced the Iranian pistachio crop this year. While around 250,000 mt were produced in 2020, this year's result came in at just around 145,000-150,000 mt. Nevertheless, traders are satisfied with exports. The period between October and January is high season for them, as various holidays in Europe and the Asian region ensure good export demand. According to market players, 17,000 mt of pistachios were shipped overseas in October and 8,000 mt and 13,000 mt respectively
