Investigating the situation of the agricultural sector with emphasis on the livestock industry

Given the importance of the agricultural sector in influencing macroeconomic indicators such as value added and job creation, as well as its key role in ensuring food security, this study is briefly and concisely with the approach of identifying challenges in Iran's agricultural sector and introducing strategies to improve productivity and production in related activities. It has been done with the mentioned section. Studies show that the most important destructive challenges in Iran's agricultural sector in the field of key production inputs, such as severe soil erosion, low productivity and water loss, ignoring them certainly have irreversible effects on the environment and production potential in agriculture. Will. It should be noted that the lack of attention to the deterrent power of laws on productivity and conservation of natural resources of water and soil as destructive factors in agricultural production is one of the challenges facing the agricultural sector in Iran.

 Market regulation of agricultural products, low quantity and quality of investment, regulation and challenges related to the business environment in value chains related to the agricultural sector and its effect on productivity and sustainability of production in the agricultural sector are among the issues that are ignored not only cost It greatly increases the opportunity resources used in this sector and is in stark contrast to national interests and social welfare, but in the long run it can accelerate the destructive challenges of growth in this sector.

Among the activities of the agricultural sector, the livestock sector is important for several reasons, such as the key role in ensuring food security (especially in the field of protein and dairy products), the long value chain and the possibility of creating high added value, employment potential and so on. It has a special.

 Studies show that the production process of light and heavy livestock products in the country has been increasing over the past 30 years, and in recent years, however, this trend has been declining.

In terms of the nature of production in Iran's livestock industry, the share of industrial cattle in creating value added and production and consequently employment is lower than traditional livestock.

On the other hand, the low productivity of the use of intermediate materials in the industrial livestock sector compared to the whole animal husbandry activity and also compared to traditional animal husbandry shows that changing production technology in the livestock industry is not an effective strategy. Search for another.

The high share of traditional animal husbandry in industry, while warning of the destruction of public natural resources, could indicate the reluctance of activists in this field to enter the systematic space of industrial production.

Iran's unfavorable ranking in the business environment according to Doing Business reports (especially in the indicators related to the scope of activity and powers of the judiciary), which ranks 1907 out of 190 countries in the overall index and in sub-indicators related to The functioning of the judiciary is also in a precarious position, deepening the factors that weaken the growth of the agricultural sector and the value chains associated with it.

Improving procedural procedures, reducing the time required to process applicants' applications, adjusting crime, especially in the area of ​​soil degradation and unauthorized water abstraction, can be effective strategies for achieving sustainable production growth in the agricultural sector and protecting the natural resources required by this sector.
