According to information from the Ministry of Agriculture, Maritime Fisheries, Rural Development, and Water and Forests, Morocco wants to double its date production by 2030 to reach 300,000 tons annually, up from 149,000 tons in 2021.

The Ministry stated in a document made public on the occasion of the International Dates Fair (SIDATTES 2022), which was held from October 27–30 in Erfoud, that this goal will be accomplished through the implementation of the new strategy Generation Green 2020–2030, which calls, among other things, for the planting of 5 million plants, including 3 million at the traditional palm.

According to the same source, the 2020–2030 new Generation Green strategy for the development of the date palm industry continues to focus on expanding plantations outside of traditional palm groves and restoring traditional palm groves.

Additionally, it wants to enhance exports, diversify outlets, increase production, develop value, modernize internal marketing and distribution methods, and create date palm byproducts.

In this way, the Department of Agriculture proposes to increase the rate of conditioning to 50% from 8% in 2020 by extending the area outside the conventional palm grove from 14,000 Ha to 21,000 Ha.

The Ministry has also set targets for increasing processing rates to 10% from the existing 0.3 percent and for promoting exports to reach 70,000 tons from 3,600 tons in 2020.
