How does Saudi Arabia get their agriculture?



  1. 0 Votes

    Saudi Arabia raises all of its primary agriculture domestically, with even a little left over to export. The country is extremely arid, however, and depends mainly on irrigation to water its crops. In the 1970s and 80s the government of Saudi Arabia undertook a massive infrastructure development program to ensure that all farmers had the transport links, electricity lines, and irrigation canals needed to turn their agriculture from subsistence to commercial. The improvements were highly successful and agricultural growth surged past official expectations. Today, although Saudi Arabia produces enough food to feed itself, it is highly dependent on imports of fertilizers and equipment.
