The grape production is expected to grow by five times in Azerbaijan during the next decade.

The Agriculture Ministry officer Sabir Valiyev told the APA that every year grapes will be planted in 1,500 to 2,000 sq meters of acreage this year, and this will continue this year as well.

There are 14,000 sq meters of grape-planted acreage in Azerbaijan now.

Over 90,000 tons of grapes were produced in 2006, of which 10% was put on sale and the rest were used in wineries.
