Oman: Agreement signed for increasing production of most popular vegetables

Yesterday, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources signed an agreement with the Amanah Waqf Funds Management Company, to initiate a project to produce 3,000 tons of the most consumed vegetables in the Sultanate on an area of 205,000 m2. The project also includes building an eco-friendly solar energy farm, which will be a tourist outlet in the region.

The agreement aims at sharing knowledge and information, as well as providing agricultural-water technical and logistical support for building greenhouses in Jamma Waqf Farm in A’Rustaq. The project seeks to convert Waqf agricultural lands into productive farms. The project will provide 100 direct and indirect job opportunities for Omani youth.

The project will also provide contracts for support services for the project, including harvest, storage, packing and transport operations. Amanah will cultivate Waqf land by introducing modern technologies in line with the food security strategy and governorate development in line with Oman Vision 2040.
