Several factors affect the production of dates in Iran.

Fine dust has a negative effect on the quantity and quality of dates.

Another factor is the drought of the last two years of the province following a noticeable decrease in rainfall during this period and as a result of the decrease in Arvand river water, combined with the decrease in water output behind Karun dams as well as salt.

The depletion of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Iraq has caused irreparable damage to the agriculture of the region, including the groves.
