The governorate of Béja ranks first with 1.6 million quintals, followed by Bizerte with 1.1 million quintals, according to data from the Grains Office published on its official page.

These quantities reached 892,000 quintals in the governorate of Jendouba, Kairouan (599,000 quintals), Siliana (532,000 quintals).
