Saudi Arabia has achieved a noteworthy milestone in agriculture through the establishment of demonstration farms, which are sustained by revitalized water resources.
Abdulrahman Al-Fadhli, who holds the position of Minister of Environment, Water, and Agriculture, was presented with the Guinness World Records registration certificate during a special ceremony hosted at the headquarters of the Saudi Rural Program in Riyadh
These farms have earned recognition from the Guinness World Records for being the world’s largest, encompassing an extensive area of 3.20 million square meters, divided into two distinct sections. Each section is furnished with spacious concrete reservoirs for water storage, and automated irrigation systems guarantee optimal hydration for all cultivated crops.
These farms uses purified water for irrigation and have five air-conditioned greenhouses. The irrigation process is managed by a group of agricultural specialists at various stages.
This agricultural facility grows an extensive range of crops and fruits, such as lemons, oranges, tangerines, pomegranates, grapes, figs, almonds, and olives. Furthermore, it also features research and development fields where various agricultural varieties are on display for experimentation.
