Tehran, IRNA – Iran has been ranked 1st to 10th in producing 20 different agricultural items, according to a person with the knowledge of the matter.

Majid Emadi, a board member of the Association of Iranian Importers of Pesticides and Fertilizers, told reporters on Saturday that Iran has a total of 68 world-ranked agricultural products.

He cited official statistics which say Iran has about 12 million hectares of land under agronomic production with 2.5 million hectares under horticultural cultivation, adding that the country is ranked 1st to 10th in the world in more than 20 products despite continuous droughts.
