It should be noted that other Countries don't sell this equipment to us, so we started this project by designing and manufacturing it inside the country on by ourselves, and in the coming days we will unveil the first radiation systems that are howe-grown. These studies were carried out using the capacity of the Ministry of Agricultural Jihad, the country's comprehensive transportation and logistics plan, based on which 12 irradiation centers were designed throughout the country."

Now this field has been activated and local devices have been built in this field and the first centers are being invested and soon the projects of this sector will also start."
