Iran reportedly plans to transfer all vegetable farms to greenhouses within the next 10 years.
The Ministry of Agriculture intends to increase the country’s greenhouse area to more than 48,000 hectares by the end of 2025, up from 12,157 hectares currently.
It expects to produce 21 million tons of agro products annually in greenhouses when the project is completed.
Last year, VB Greenhouse Projects, part of the VB Group from the Netherlands, has signed a million dollar contract with KSM Group to build 20 hectares of greenhouses in Iran.
