Egypt about to fail on wheat self-sufficiency?

Egypt about to fail on wheat self-sufficiency? | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By PhysicsWorld, 29/10/2018

A plan by the Egyptian government to make the country self-sufficient in wheat will likely fail by the 2040s, according to a study by researchers in Egypt and the US.

The plan involves intensifying farming methods and the near-doubling of irrigated land for wheat production by 2035, from 3.9 to 7.7 million hectares. According to the study, however, even a modest growth in population will swiftly consume the extra yield from this expansion.

“As about 30% of wheat is irrigated globally, the challenges Egypt is facing are similar to other countries trying to increase agricultural production,” says Senthold Asseng of the University of Florida, US. “What we learn from our study in Egypt will also apply to other parts of the world.”

Algérie: Une autosuffisance à hauteur de 90% en blé dur et de 100% en orge à partir de 2020

Algérie: Une autosuffisance à hauteur de 90% en blé dur et de 100% en orge à partir de 2020 | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Le directeur du département des céréales et du soutien de la production à l'Office algérien interprofessionnel des céréales (OAIC) a affirmé ce samedi à Alger que l'Algérie atteindra à partir de 2020 "une autosuffisance en blé dur et en orge". Alors que la compagne 2017-2018 s'annonce très bien grâce à une bonne pluviométrie à l'Est, l'Ouest et au Centre du pays, des mesures de soutien des agriculteurs dans l'utilisation des semences traités et des engrais et des investissements en machines et irrigation économe en eau notamment devraient permettre d'augmenter la production d'ici 2020 et combler également un déficit de 15 million quintaux.
