Iran will not import wheat this year
TEHRAN ,Iran, traditionally a big importer of wheat, said it would not import any in the year to March 2004 as it seeks to become self-sufficient, the official IRNA news agency reported on Sunday.
This year, for the first time, the country will not need to import wheat," the agency quoted government spokesman Abdollah Ramazanzadeh as saying. The Iranian calendar year ends on March 20.
Ramazanzadeh said domestic production had increased because of good water management policies and a healthy rainfall.
Minister of Agricultural Jihad, Mahmoud Hojjati, had said earlier this month that Iran would need to import less than one million tonnes of wheat by March 2004.
Ministry officials were not immediately available for comment.
Iran traditionally imports the grain from countries such as Canada, Australia and Argentina.
The government has said it was working on a plan to boost wheat production, aiming for wheat self-sufficiency in four years.
