It added that hundreds of olive presses resumed operations after extensive areas of the national territory were freed from terrorism.
Cotton is another of the crops that is recovering and production this year would reach 90,470 tons, according to figures announced by state company Cotton Marketing and Processing.
Before the war in 2011, Syria covered all its agricultural production needs, but terrorism caused production to fall drastically, before it began to recover in the last two years. ■
