Al Rawdha village -in the district of Al Mudhaibi, North A’Sharqiya- is known for its diverse agricultural crops throughout the year thanks to its fertile soil and year-round availability of water in abundance.
Besides the cultivation of date palm trees, citrus fruits, fodder and multiple types of fruit trees, grape cultivation stands out as one of the most important agricultural crops in the village. Currently grape is very abundant in the markets of the district and neighbouring districts, achieving a great economic return for farmers, and being able to compete with imported grapes.
A grape farmer in Al Rawdha village said: "The interest in growing grape is continuously increasing. It receives significant attention from farmers and officials at various agricultural development sections in the district. This is noticed in recent years in the large agricultural areas where grapes are grown.”
Attention given to grape cultivation in the village starts at the beginning of the season until the date of harvest, including continuous irrigation, fertilisation, pruning, creating an appropriate environment, protection against agricultural pests and using modern agricultural methods.
There are many types of grapes including black, white, and Lebanese, which achieve outstanding success in cultivation and quality. Harvesting of grapes in the village starts from June and ends at the end of August.
