OUR IMPACT

Goals

The project focuses on innovation and scaling of technologies in rain-fed production systems in Morocco and Lebanon; irrigated production systems in Egypt and Sudan and Agro-pastoral production system in Jordan. The major crops in the rainfed and irrigated systems were wheat (bread and durum wheat, barley), food legumes (faba bean and Kabuli chickpea) and forage crops (legume and grass species) and associated production technologies. The Agro-pastoral farming system covers improving range productivity, improving cactus (food and feed), restoration of degraded land and animal health

Objectives

The objectives of the AFESD funding is to deliver products (crop cultivars), information and knowledge, services (training and seeds) in the five targeted countries of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Sudan. It also integrates food crops, forages, range and integrated crop and pest management practices targeting rain fed (Morocco and Lebanon) and irrigated (Egypt and Sudan) agro-ecologies. The agro-pastoral (Jordan) production system is targeted in Jordan.
