Abstract: 

Despite a long history of saffron production in Iran, which dates back thousands of years, research on this crop is still in its early stages, starting only seventy years ago and the last review on saffron research in Iran was published about 15 years ago. Due to increasing research activity on different aspects of saffron in the last decade, need for a comprehensive review was indispensable. Research on saffron, when started, was mostly focused on saffron cultivation, however, the present review shows that new topics such as genetics, tissue culture, processing and economic issues have gained more attention during recent years. This review attempts to catalog all published works in Farsi (Persian) including 14 books, 90 research reports, 62 master and PhD thesis, 66 papers and 134 presentations at national symposiums into four major areas namely; cultivation technology, processing, use and applications and economic issues. Number of accessible resources and as the percentage of total, in these four categories, are 180 (47.8%), 100 (26.6%), 57 (15.4%) and 39 (10.3%), respectively. Analysis of the published works in the past 70 years reveals that about 80% of the works have been published during the last 15 years. Directions for future works have been proposed based upon the past conclusions and the emerging needs.
