Shafaq News/
The head of the Union of Farmers' Societies, Haider Al-Abadi, said on Friday that the shortage of agricultural crops is a result of water scarcity.

Al-Abadi told Shafaq News Agency, "We have lost more than two million tons of wheat crop due to lack of water and non-payment of farmers' dues," noting that

the country's production was supposed to reach 6 million tons.

According to the figures of the Iraqi Ministry of Trade, Iraq's production reached 4.539 million tons of local wheat in the current season, achieving self-sufficiency for the third year in a row.

The Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture expected that the local production would reach 6 million tons.

Iraq needs to reach the stage of self-sufficiency in the wheat crop to 4.2 million tons annually, in addition to one million tons imported for the purposes of improving quality by mixing it with local wheat.

Al-Abadi pointed out that "the next season will witness a clear shortage in the production of agricultural crops," explaining that

"the management of the water file is incorrect in Iraq."
