Glenn Behrman:

"Qatar could export vegetables in the future"

Qatar could become an exporter of several agricultural products at some point in the future, Glenn Behrman told Gulf Times.

“There are tremendous opportunities for the country,” he claimed.

“We can recreate nature. If the plants want rain, there will be rain, if there is no need of wind, there will be no wind and can even provide the best light for the plant. It is fully controlled through computers. Some crops grow 18- 20 hours a day and the yield is dramatically higher,” said Behrman.

In Qatar to explore the possibilities of introducing the new method, the expert had several rounds of meetings with the royal family members, government officials, potential partners and investors as well as business people in the country.

“We have had several rounds of discussions. They had visited me in the US and invited me to come over here. Now, we are moving into the next stage of co-operation. I am hopeful that we will be able to start the project in less than six months,” noted Behrman.
