TEHRAN, Dec. 22 (MNA) – With the cold winter days coming, farmers in the northern Iranian province of Mazandaran, are busy harvesting citrus fruits, which form a lion’s share of the country’s domestic demand and exports.

Mazandaran accounts for 1.5% of Iran’s land area and 2.5% of agricultural land, while its agricultural output tops 7 million tons per annum.

More than 2.2 million tons of citrus fruits are cultivated on 110,000 hectares of land in Mazandaran every year, which meets nearly 50% of the domestic demand.
