Egypt: Paving way for self-sufficiency in Red Sea's Al-Qusayr

Citizens of Al-Qusayr city in Red Sea governorate in Egypt are seeking to achieve self-sufficiency as they started six years ago, paving a farm within the most important mountain valleys in the city.   
The farm, called Al-Quwaih, produces large quantities of vegetables and fruits during the current days, which are sold in an outlet designated for them in the city of Quseir, and quantities are also sold in the city of Hurghada.

Mahmoud Abu Bakr, director of the Al-Quwaih farm, said that Al-Quwaih has an area cultivated so far of 120 acres, which includes various crops, including vegetables and fruits, as well as palm trees, onions, carrots, and other vegetables.

The farm manager added that before planting, a study was made on the types of vegetables suitable for the percentage of salinity, as it is high in that area between 2500 to 3000 degrees, as cucumbers were previously cultivated, but its productivity began to gradually decrease, and studies are being conducted to grow it again. 
Fruits, lemons, mangoes, and tangerines are grown in large areas, while palm cultivation is also one of the best-produced crops, especially since the cultivated variety is of high quality and is called the replaced palm, which is the king of dates, stressing that all the company’s products are sold in a special outlet and permanently in the city of Qusayr.
