The pistachios harvest in Gafsa will start in a few days with the production estimated to reach 1,200 tonnes this year, i.e. the double compared to last year (600 tonnes), according to the Regional Agricultural Development Commission (CRDA).

With this harvest, the region ranks first in pistachio production nationally, officer in charge of Crop Production at the CRDA Abdessattar Ghitane said.
