Many farmers in Golestan province, northern Iran, are harvesting their echium crops these days.

The residents of Fazel Abad village in Azadshahr, Golestan province, are harvesting echium from their 60-hectare lands, which had been left unused until a few years ago before the cultivation of this medicinal plant.

What follows are IRNA’s photos of echium harvest in the northern Iranian village:
