Al Khadra Large Farms Project

The Al Khadra project will irrigate 13,000 hectares upon completion in Late 2007 using water from the Omar Muhktar Reservoir and distributed to the fields by Pump Station 319 and a 140 kilometer pipeline network. The fields will be irrigated by center ditch feed linear systems each covering approximately 160 hectares and by center pivot systems of 50 hectares each. These irrigation systems, supplied by Valmont Industries of the United States, provide the latest technology to achieve the highest water use efficiency possible.

The project includes the development of four farm compounds each with workshops, fertilizer and seed storage, residence buildings for farm workers, office and equipment storage facilities.

Currently we are producing Durum and Soft Wheat, feed barley, oats, corn and alfalfa hay and 25 hectares of table grapes
