Corona left pistachios in storage instead of exported/ half of last year’s crop
The Covid virus got rid of Iran’s pistachio exports on July 10, and last year half of the pistachio crop was not exported and remained in exporters’ warehouses.
The initial prediction was that we would have a good year ahead, given the good winters last year and the good rains in the first half of spring. Especially in places that had less product in 2019
Every year since the beginning of October, pistachio traders have been trying to meet the needs of global markets by taking advantage of the Christmas holidays. The Chinese New Year holidays were also a good opportunity to export some of Iran’s pistachios to this country. The first market was lost due to supply delays
And the latter market due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
The Covid virus got rid of Iran’s pistachio exports on July 10, and many pistachio traders were plagued by back-breaking problems as the Chinese government prevented them from clearing their export shipments of pistachios and banning their transportation. Thus, last year, half of the pistachio crop was not exported and remained in the exporters’ warehouses
Despite the problems in the pollination process of pistachio trees, it is predicted that pistachio production this year will be slightly lower than last year. We will not have a bad product this year either, and since half of last year’s product is stored in warehouses, overall the product can be sold more than last year.
