FMD in Egypt and Libya (27 March 2012)
The natural resources for agriculture in the Near East are limited. Except for Sudan and Turkey, there are very limited land reserves remaining for horizontal expansion in arable agriculture. Yield increase and increased cropping intensity are the only avenues still open. However, the fact that 66 percent of the agriculturally-suitable areas are permanent pastures indicates a reasonable potential for livestock production when compared to crop production in the Region. In addition, most of the land classified as waste and barren, about 57 percent of the total land area, is classified as rangeland and provides significant feed resources to the nomadic and trans- human livestock populations.
