TEHRAN- Pruning season began in the vineyards of Takestan county, in Qazvin province.

Pruning of vineyards starts in mid-March when the vineyard gardeners of Takestan spend busy days.

Of course, there are different types of pruning, and most gardeners in Iran do this in the traditional way, which is necessary to learn new methods of pruning.

Takestan is the second largest grape producer and the first producer of raisins in the country.

Some 70 percent of the grapes produced in this city are dried to be raisins, which, in addition to domestic consumption, are exported to Iraq, Russia, the Persian Gulf littoral states, and some other countries in Central Asia and Europe.
