Flowers and ornamental plants valued at $19.5 million were exported from Mahallat county, in Iran’s central Markazi province, during the first nine months of the past Iranian calendar year (March 21-Decemebr 21, 2022), Mohammad-Jamal Abbasi, the head of the country’s Industry, Mining, and Trade Department, announced.
Markazi province is ranked first in the country in terms of producing variable flowers and ornamental plants. This province has second place in the production of cut flowers and third place in the production of flowers and ornamental plants.
