    that's why the crop is costing 2x more....it's called inflation So now that the RIAL is worth 1/4 of it's value of just 3 years ago, the crop failure cut the amount in half, but it now costs 4x as much for 1/2 the crop....it's just that the wee little president likes to play with numbers and himself. Persian Pistchio's are not cleaned before shipping and they don't require washing of any laborer's hands or any other basic hygiene for the farmhands who process food/edibles...I wonder what the rate of dysentary/desease/infectious outbreaks is in their food industry Probably one of the highest in the ME except for Gaza.
