The Important Elements of the Middle East & Africa Desert Farming Market
This is attributed to the growing demand for food security in the Middle East & Africa. Therefore, desert farming can offer an alternative for farmers that are experiencing more frequent droughts and extreme weather patterns. Additionally, the high dependence on imported foods can be reduced by practicing desert farming, which can help to have more access to fresh, and healthy foods, thus, in turn, augmenting the growth of the Middle East & Africa desert farming market. Advances in technology, such as solar-powered irrigation systems and hydroponic techniques, are making desert farming more feasible and efficient, which is expected to further aid the growth of the Middle East & Africa desert farming market in the future five years.
Hydroponics is one of the most notable trends in desert farming which involves growing plants in nutrient-rich water solutions, which eliminates the need for soil and reduces water usage. This method is particularly well-suited for growing high-value crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce in the desert region of the Middle East. Hydroponic systems are also used to grow crops in controlled environments, using artificial lighting and climate control systems, which allow for year-round production.
Another trend that is boosting the practice of desert farming includes vertical farming which involves growing crops in vertically stacked layers, using artificial lighting and climate control systems. This method allows for the efficient use of space and resources and can be used to grow a variety of crops in urban areas with limited access to arable land. In addition, vertical farming can be used to produce crops close to the point of consumption, reducing transportation costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
Moreover, advancements in genetics and plant breeding have also contributed to the development of crops that are better suited to arid regions. Plant breeders are developing crops that are more resistant to drought, pests, and disease, and that can thrive in hot and dry conditions. These crops will not only be more productive, but they will also require fewer inputs of water and fertilizer. However, the limited crop options in the region are expected to hamper the growth of the market. Besides, the lack of awareness among farmers about the various alternative techniques are anticipated to slow down the growth of the Middle East & Africa desert farming market in the forthcoming years.
