IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF HORTICULTURAL CROPS IN THE GULF COOPERATION COUNCIL COUNTRIES THROUGH RESEARCH

A.R. Al-Harbi
Environmental stresses represent the most important limiting conditions for horticultural productivity and plant exploitation worldwide, particularly in arid and semi-arid areas. At this time we need to develop more of applied research from which new and innovative agriculture analysis and technologies will emerge. This article highlights and describes some of the problems facing the production of horticultural crops in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and how to overcome them through scientific research and applied research experiences. In this context, I will discuss several points, including water scarcity, environmental stress, post-harvest losses, and the use of renewable energy in agriculture.
