Saudi Arabia Pioneers Sea Water Use For Vegetable Growth


Saudi Arabia announced the success of its seawater-based agricultural research project, to become the first of its kind in the Arab region. The project enables the reduction of water waste and energy costs in the production of fish and vegetables by adopting a closed system to fully recycle seawater, in addition to special cooling in greenhouses without using any other water source, as the success of cooling systems was studied in light of changes in temperature and humidity throughout the season. The entire system was powered by solar energy.
