Iran President urged to intervene in rice payments
Jamil Alizadeh-Shayeq, secretary of State Rice Association, told ISNA that the Commerce Ministry has managed to pay only 40 bln rials out of its total debts of 175 bln rials to rice farmers in Mazandaran province, stressing that rice self-sufficiency will not materialize as long as the farmers are not paid on time.

He said production of high-yielding varieties is expected to reach one mln tons by March 2006, adding that 230,000 hectares have been brought under high-yielding rice cultivation.

The official further noted that rice production is expected to total 2.2 mln tons from 630,000 hectares in the period.

He said Iran needs to import 300,000 tons of rice this year, rejecting reports that imports will total 800,000 tons.

Some 25-30 % of the country?s rice production is wasted in the processing stage.

There are over 3,000 rice processing factories in the country. Most of them are old and malfunctioning.

A modern rice processing factory will be set up in the northwestern city of Gonbad-e Kavoos. Experts say construction of modern factories will help lower wastage in rice production and reduce imports.
