Syria to produce more than one million tons of wheat

Damascus, May 30 (Prensa Latina) Ahmed Saleh Ibrahim, president of the Union of Syrian Farmers, predicted that the country will produce between one million and 1.2 million tons of wheat in the current season.

The estimate only covers the agricultural lands planted with this cereal in areas under the Government control, amounting to 557,000 hectares, Ibrahim said in statements to Athr Press portal.

The Syrian Government recently approved a package of measures aimed at boosting wheat planting and supporting wheat farmers, considered the main food for the population.

Before the war in 2011, this nation produced sufficient quantities for consumption and export.

The State is currently forced to import wheat from other nations, particularly Russia, amid many difficulties resulting from the economic blockade and the sanctions imposed by the United States and Western allies.
