Omani garlic production has doubled in Helm in the state of Sur

Muscat: Farmers in the village of Helm in Wadi Bani Jaber in the state of Sure during the month of April harvest the garlic, which began to be planted at the beginning of October, as Omani garlic is distinguished by its pungent smell, purple color and the possibility of storing it in appropriate conditions for long periods extending for more than a year.

The village of Helm, like the rest of the mountain villages in Wadi Bani Jaber in the state of  Sure, is distinguished by the cultivation of many agricultural crops throughout the year. The cultivation of Omani garlic is one of the priorities of the farmers in the village, as farmers strive to produce a bumper crop of high quality by following the required agricultural processes, starting from their choice of good seeds and attention. By irrigation and fertilization operations, especially local ones, avoiding adding any chemical compounds and industrial catalysts that affect its properties and characteristics.

Engineer Khalid bin Hamdan Al-Hadrami, Director of the Department of Agricultural Development in Sure, explained the ministry’s role in encouraging farmers to expand the cultivation of local crops by supporting farmers with good seeds in addition to periodic follow-up and giving the required technical recommendations. Therefore, the production quantities of the garlic crop have doubled this year, which has focused on cultivation. In the villages of Wadi Bani Jaber due to the nature of the lands in these villages, which are commensurate with such crops, it is expected that the production of these villages of Omani garlic this year will reach more than 3 tons, an increase of 50 percent compared to last year, and the demand for its purchase is higher than expected in the Sultanate and abroad.
