Cultivation of wheat crop in Bahla

Bahla: Wheat is one of the important agricultural crops grown in the Sultanate of Oman, and the Wilayat of Bahla in the Governorate of Al Dakhiliyah is one of the states famous for cultivating wheat in large areas.

Wheat cultivation receives care and attention from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources by supporting and encouraging farmers as it is a strategic commodity that affects food security, and provides them with seeds of improved, high-yielding varieties, as well as provides modern harvesting machines, and provides extension and technical support and direct supervision on the various fields.

Eng. Abdullah bin Ali Al-Hinai, Director of the Agricultural Wealth and Water Resources Department in Bahla, said: “New types of wheat crops are currently being cultivated in the state of Bahla, which were developed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources, with the aim of resisting different environmental conditions such as heat and stagnation, and increasing productivity and disease resistance.

He added that the cultivation of the wheat crop begins during November and ends in mid-December, so that the harvest takes place after 125 days of planting for most varieties, indicating that 4,200 kilograms of different varieties of wheat were distributed to Wadi Qurayyat, Jibrin, Kuli, Sannin, Suraya, and Maysani (110- 227- 228- 229- 230- 226) respectively.

Al Hinai explained that the sale and marketing of wheat crops takes place in the local and neighboring markets and through the Oman Mills Company for all the quantities produced, and the purchasing value of the wheat crop is high as a result of the high demand and demand from the consumer.

It is worth noting that there are various other crops that are grown in abundance at this time, such as chickpeas, tomatoes, cabbage, cucumbers, cauliflower and lettuce, which are being monitored by specialists in the Department of Agricultural Wealth and Water Resources in the Wilayat of Bahla.
