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.

According to market players, 17,000 mt of pistachios were shipped overseas in October and 8,000 mt and 13,000 mt respectively
