The result showed that Iranian traders purchase most of the saffron produced in Afghanistan. The saffron is then integrated into the larger saffron market in Iran and exported as Iranian saffron. Afghan farmers sell the bulk of their saffron to Iranian merchants for the simple reason that Iran is tied to the global saffron market, and Afghanistan is not, which puts farmers in a poor negotiating position. The largest global producer and exporter of saffron right next door, Iran can easily absorb the miniscule amount of saffron that Afghan farmers currently produce.
