It was first in producing dates and it was the first in the number of date trees. It was also the leading date-exporting country.'''''''' 18. Wide of factory production line floor LEADIN: Iraq was once the world leader in date production and export. But years of war, bombing, drought and power shortages have left the industry struggling. Now the Iraqi government is reinvesting in date farming to help the industry get back to its heydays of the 1950s. STORYLINE This date palm farm in Iraq is one of the lucky ones. Many similar plots have been destroyed by years of war, sanctions and drought. The date crop has always been important to the Iraqi economy. During its heyday, in the 1950s and 1960s, Iraq was the world''''s No. 1 date producer and exporter and boasted 32 million date palms, more than any other nation in the world. At that time, Iraq produced about 1 million tons of dates annually, according to the head of the Agriculture Ministry''''s Date Palm Board. But by 2003, there were only half that number of trees and production fell to 200,000 tons. The southern province of Basra was the worst hit by the slump, with only about a quarter of the 12 million date trees it once had. Now the new government is taking its own action to revive Iraq''''s lost golden age of dates, supporting farmers with loans and launching nurseries. It''''s not just an economic issue of getting a bigger slice of a date export market that nets big producers like Iran and Pakistan millions of dollars a year. Being renowned for dates is also a point of pride. Like all Muslims, Iraqis honour the date palm as a blessed plant. It is mentioned many times in the holy book of Quran which, at one point, states Mary gave birth to Jesus under a palm tree and ate its fruit to ease the pain of childbirth. And the prophet Mohammed stressed the benefits of dates as a medicine for several human diseases. A date is the traditional way for Muslims around the world to break their daily sunrise to sunset fast during the holy month of Ramadan. But the important crop has suffered in Iraq. Kamil Mikhlif al-Dulaimi, head of the Agriculture Ministry''''s Date Palm Board, explains why. But the mood is now more positive with the government keen to redress this migration.

After years of wars, sanctions and drought, farmers say it's time to save Iraq's fruit palm industry, which was once at the forefront of the world market. They're especially calling on the government to play a greater role in reviving Iraq's lost golden-age of dates. They want loans for farmers so they can launch new nurseries and buy pesticides. ''Most of the orchards in Iraq have been damaged due to agricultural pests, insects, drought and shortage of electricity.

During its heyday, in the 1950s and 1960s, Iraq was the world's biggest date producer and exporter, boasting 32 million date palms. At that time, Iraq produced about one million tonnes of dates per year, according to official reports. But by 2003, after the U.S.-led invasion of the country, the number of trees halved and production fell to 200,000 tonnes annually. The southern province of Basra was worst hit by the slump, having only about a quarter of the 12 million date palms it once had. Being renowned for dates is also a point of pride.

And the prophet Mohammed stressed the benefits of dates as a medicine for several human diseases. A date is the traditional way Muslims around the break their daily sunrise to sunset fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Iraq is now focussing on the date industry as one of several sectors, including oil, agriculture and infrastructure, it wants to develop. However the effects of recent conflicts, including the fight against the Islamic State group, are still being keenly felt. ''Due to seizure of the country's western areas, Anbar and Hit by Daesh (Islamic State group), Iraq has lost so many quantities of rare and important kinds of dates," explains date seller, Shihab Malik. Chronic problems in Iraq, such as lack of water, electricity, fuel, and storage have forced many farmers to abandon cultivation and find other jobs.

(21 Oct 2015) LEAD IN: Apple farmers in the Northern Kurdish region of Iraq are struggling to harvest their crops due to Turkish airstrikes. Warplanes are attacking on two fronts, one of them targeting the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) which controls much of the apple farming area. STORY-LINE: Tree branches at an Iraqi apple farm are heavy with fruit. But many are likely to go unpicked. The farm's owner considers the job to be too dangerous. This orchard is in the Northern Kurdish region and in an area controlled by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). Turkey has been carrying out airstrikes against the group since July. "It affected us because we cannot go to our farms, we cannot go to our planted gardens up in the mountains, and it affected us because we can not take our livestock for breeding in the open lands. It all affected us," says Selim Ahmed, the apple farmer. So apples fall from branch to ground, rotting where they land. But Ahmed's livelihood faces more problems than just the Turkish jets. The Islamic State group controls large swathes of the country - areas his farm used to supply. So the market is now much smaller and there's an over supply of apples in Dohuk and Zakho. "It's because it can not be sent to any place, it can not be sent to Mosul. It can not be sent to Baghdad either, plus the impact of the war with Daesh, and the government here doesn't help us to cope with these circumstances," Ahmed complains. He owns three apple farms in the area. Ahmed says he used to make nine to ten million Iraqi dinars per year (7,578 - 8420 US Dollars). This year he won't even make one million dinar (842 US Dollars). The 66-year-old says the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) needs to provide help. They already provide essential public services in the area, so the farmers want to know why can't they help the crucial agricultural situation. "We don't have refrigerators to keep the product. The government should bring refrigerators to us in order to preserve the apples, or to be canned in an apple canning factory," Ahmed says. In the nearby village of Maii, the Kani Masi Agricultural Department has been monitoring the situation. Its director, Abdul Aziz Mohammed, says apple sales have been devastated. "I'd say from 2013 we used to export 6,000 to 7,000 tonnes of apples per year," he says. "This year the production is not good at all because of the air strikes. More than 13 to 14 villages were evacuated by the farmers because of the air strikes. Which is why there are hardly any sales and harvesting. I'd say they aren't even able to sell 2,500 to 3,000 tonnes to the local market," Mohammed continues. The PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey and Western countries.
