ISNA / Kerman, director of Jihad Keshavarzi of Shahr-e-Babak city, referring to the damage of spring cold to pistachio crop in this city, said: To the agricultural sector, there is no agricultural meteorological station to predict the temperature in pistachio-rich areas.

"Mangali" referring to the visit of the research team of the country's pistachio research institute to the pistachio orchards damaged by frost in Shahrbabak city, said: following the occurrence of frost in the pistachio crop of the city in April this year Pistachios visited Khatunabad and Robat areas.

He said: "The main reason for such damages, which unfortunately occur every year with low or high intensity in the pistachio growing areas of the city and lead to heavy damage to the agricultural sector and non-oil exports and farmers, is the lack of agricultural meteorological station to advance." The nose temperature is in pistachio-prone areas.

Mangali added: "Considering the importance of pistachio export and the need to maintain foreign markets, this problem needs to be resolved as soon as possible with the pursuit of officials and the participation of the private sector."

The director of Jihad Keshavarzi of Shahrbabak city stated: during the visit, it was observed that a small number of farmers (at the level of one to two hectares) were able to burn diesel and paraffin inside metal cans at a distance of 2 to 4 meters in each row. Maintain an acceptable product, which shows that if timely information and support of the farmer in the supply of fuels (diesel, gas or garden heaters and electronic blower fans) can be a great help to the agricultural sector. And did the country's non-oil exports and prevented losses.
