Saudi Arabia: First phase of planting 49 million fruit and lemon trees has started

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has started implementing the first phase of two initiatives to plant 49 million fruit and lemon trees in various regions, as part of the Saudi Green Initiative. These include 45 million fruit trees in agricultural terraces and 4 million lemon trees with renewable water by 2030.

These initiatives are expected to provide more than half of the nation’s imports of fruits, so as to achieve the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. Under the initiatives, 45 million fruit trees will be planted in the regions of Makkah, Asir, Al-Baha, and Jazan, and 4 million lemon trees will be planted with renewable water in the regions of Riyadh, Eastern Province, Makkah, Najran, Qassim, Madinah, Al-Baha, Asir and Jazan.

The initiatives are expected to contribute effectively to the sustainability, cultivation and production of the fruit crop to achieve food security and sustainable development, exploit rainwater and renewable water, and benefit from it in irrigation and replenish groundwater reserves.
