The most important reason for the increase in exports in these six months compared to the same period last year is the improvement of the coronavirus epidemic and widespread vaccination, which facilitated trade and transportation of agricultural products. Also, the rise in the average exchange rate of foreign currencies compared to the same period last year encouraged more Iranian farmers and traders to export almonds. Another reason for the increased exports in the mentioned time compared to the same period the previous year is better quality and improved product availability.
