10,000 tonnes more vegetables grown at Abu Dhabi farms
is impressive and highly promising to note the increased production forecast
for UAE farm produce in the coming season. The effort and amount of technology
expertise added with financial support is huge and each of the participating
farmers should be highly praised to keep the interest in the field of
agriculture ongoing with sustained interest. With the weather conditions not in
favor and with all the global warming issues kept in mind, it is of great
importance to encourage more locals to come forward and actively participate in
agriculture that suits the nation. In order to garner additional support, the
produce should be allocated a special corners at all the leading supermarkets
and be given prominence in terms of pricing and marketing. Wherever there is
lack of water supply identified, it should be complemented with alternate
source of water supply to keep the interest sustained.
