Iran's agricultural harvest topped 110 million tonnes last year.
At a meeting with model farmers and agricultural workers, Peyman Falsafi, an advisor to the Agriculture Ministry, said 99 percent of Iran's agricultural sector is administered by the private sector, IRNA reports.
Falsafi mentioned a list of goals Iran's Fifth Five Year Socio-Economic Development Plan (2011-2015) has detailed for the agricultural sector. These include strengthening agricultural infrastructure, becoming self-sufficient in essential goods, improving water conservation and efficiency and finishing the infrastructure needed for efficient water use.
