Rosselkhoznadzor Held Telephone Negotiations with Iranian Plant Protection Organization under the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad Devoted to Fruit and Vegetable Export to Russia

The Rosselkhoznadzor held phone talks with the Plant Protection Organization under the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad of the Republic of Iran on April 16. The competent authorities discussed export of fruit and vegetables to Russia.

The Russian party informed the Iranian colleagues that in 2018 the export volume of fresh apples from Iran to Russia grew almost 80 times as compared to 2017 and reached 61 thousand tons. In this light, the Rosselkhoznadzor sent a letter to the Iranian Competent Authority in late March with the request to provide information about factual export volumes to Russia. In the course of the talks, the Iranian colleagues confirmed significant increase in apple production in the Islamic Republic of Iran and explained that increase in apple export to Russia in 2018 was associated with the increase in demand for Iranian apples. 

Moreover, the Iranian party stated that no fresh apples are imported to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In order to inspect apple production and storage sites the Plant Protection Organization under the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad invited the Rosselkhoznadzor specialists to visit the Islamic Republic of Iran.
