Egypt To Benefit From Japan-supported Irrigation Support


The Egyptian Government is studying a proposal from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to use the surface irrigation system in cultivating rice, said the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation in a statement on Saturday. The first place is Wadi el-Natroun, Beheria governorate (Delta) where the cultivation would depend on underground water, while the second place is in Sharqia's Enshas city where other crops besides Rice could be cultivated by the surface irrigation system.
