ICS in Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the Arabian Gulf

Key consultant & supplier in the region since 1980

The Arabian Peninsula has a predominantly arid climate with most of the region covered by large (Rub alKhali - Empty quarters) and small deserts with harsh summers and mild winters in most places. Until the 70’s, agriculture was traditional with subsistence farming in most of the region.

The late 70’s and early 80’s saw the introduction of modern agriculture with subsidies and aid from the oil rich economies. This helped the introduction of new technologies, newer crops, and expertise from the developed world. From a food importing region it turned into food exporting one. This came at the expense of high cost, depletion of underground aquifers, changes in demography with the induction of expatriate work force.

Today the governments of the region are trying to reduce the negative effects of the above by checking water use, encouraging vegetable farming only in controlled environments, orchard and fruits grown with low water requirement such as with drip irrigation. Traditional sprinkler and center pivot irrigation is on a decline due to regulations introduced to save water.

ICS has been involved in the region for 30 years

ICS has been involved actively from the 80’s in the introduction of newer technologies, crop species (Vegetables such as Onion, Potato etc, Corn hybrids and improved Alfalfa varieties), and the introduction of energy, cost and water saving farm equipment.
