TEHRAN, Nov. 27 (MNA) – FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) representative in Iran Dr. Abdul Rashid said on Saturday that Iran’s project of institutionalizing the seed and sapling controlling and certifying system would positively affect the non-oil exports of the country.

Abdul al-Rashid told ISNA that the project is a good step to increase the non-oil exports. However, it has been presently postponed due to a delay of Iranian government's request to FAO to begin the project. The measures would be taken as soon as Iran does request, he added.


Iran had a high-level of importation in the last thirty years, especially during the Iran-Iraq 1980-1988 war when many damages were imposed on the country. However, after the imposed war the country strived to find its real position and within a short time the production of wheat and corn as well as many of the livestock products exceeded the domestic demand, he said in conclusion.
