Syria ranks first in Arab World in cherry production

The Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform estimated the production of cherries for this season in Syria at 49,896 tons.

Director of Plant production at the Ministry of Agriculture, Engineer Abdel Moeen Qadamani, told SANA reporter that Syria ranked first in the Arab world and the sixth in the world in the production of this fruit.

He added that Syria produced about 55 thousand tons last year, attributing the decline in production this year to weather conditions.

Qadmani confirmed that the Ministry’s nurseries produced last year 74527 cherry plants that were sold to farmers at symbolic prices of 300 pounds as a kind of support for them, pointing out that this year’s plan is to produce 104,000 cherry plants.
