So in order to better manage the import of agricultural products and identifying the necessary tools to control the indiscriminate importation of these products, in this study, the pattern of imports of agricultural products (wheat, barley, corn, sugar, rice, chicken meat, meat, egg and oilseed) was analyzed and evaluated. The results show that the price policy on imports of egg products, chicken, wheat, due to mainly impact, has higher importance. So, import tariff on wheat, meat and barley as an instrument of trade policy is very important. The study also showed that the impact of currency fluctuations on some of products is positive (meat) and in some of crops (sugar) is negative. Therefore to efficiently manage on agricultural products imports, supporting local producers and food security through food availability in the country, the appropriate policy instruments to keep pace with current trade policies, should be used.
