The grain production in Iraq this season is exceptional, as a total of 1.6 million tons have been marketed, according to the general director of the state-owned seed company.
“The company continues to receive wheat and barley crops throughout the provinces, which reached 350,000 tons,” the trade ministry said in a statement received by Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
“The company marketed 1.260 million tons of wheat and 347.6 thousands of barley in the past three months,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, the statement quoted the general director of the company’s branch in Wassit, Malek Khalaf Wadi, as saying that the Wassit still tops the Iraqi provinces in marketing wheat.
“Wassit has marketed 195,000 tons of wheat this season,” he noted.
