Algeria: Citrus production in Blida up by over 100% since 2000
In his presentation on the sector's results during the past year, Mr Qanis explained that the Citrus Production Division in the province has experienced a great development in recent years. The production volume has increased from 2,283,984 kantar in 2000 to 5,800,788 kantar last year.
The official attributed this development in the production to several factors, most importantly the resources provided to ensure the training of the producers, as well as the acquisition of advanced agricultural equipment, which has been possible thanks to the financial support provided to them.
Also, the rehabilitation and development program of the citrus sector, which resulted in the uprooting of old trees from the colonial period and their replacement with younger ones, contributed to improving the yield, which has risen from 136 quintals per hectare to 224 quintals, adds the source.
In this context, Mr Qanis pointed out that the majority of the agricultural land producing citrus is located around the municipality of Wadi Al-Alayq, which is the largest producer in the province, followed by the municipalities of Mouzaia, Chebli and Boufarik. The total acreage has also increased, from 12.480 hectares in 2000 to 17,495 hectares last year.
