Wheat is grown on about million ha or 27% of the total cultivated land in Syria, mainly under rainfed conditions (– mm annual rainfall), which are increasingly experiencing supplemental irrigation, while drier (Cited by:   Agricultural intensification in the form of irrigated rice has often been given a causal role in the development of urbanism (cf.

Fuller and Qin ; Stargardt ; Wittfogel ). Across South Asia, and particularly Sri Lanka, irrigation tanks (artificial reservoirs of any size) form significant parts of the landscape, as well as cultural Author: Eleanor Kingwell-Banham.

While most of the studies cited are from the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) based in the northern rainfed zone of Syria, the findings are generally. Rainfed agriculture is a type of farming that relies on rainfall for water. It provides much of the food consumed by poor communities in developing example, rainfed agriculture accounts for more than 95% of farmed land in sub-Saharan Africa, 90% in Latin America, 75% in the Near East and North Africa, 65% in East Asia, and 60% in South Asia.

Though no doubt many studies involved N responses of rainfed field crops in the Mediterranean region in the past few decades, there were two main focal points of dryland research involving N, that is, ICARDA in Aleppo in northern Syria and the Dryland Applied Agricultural Research Project in Settat, Morocco (Ryan et al., ).

The world’s ability to produce enough food to feed the growing population is further constrained by water scarcity, particularly in dry areas. Water is an increasingly scarce resource and the FAO estimates that nearly billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water- scarcity by Cited by: 2.

Rainfed areas, although vary from region to region, are important in terms of agriculture since most of the poor communities live in these areas. Rainfed agriculture (RFA) is fragile due to climatic vagaries. More than However, agriculture and the livelihoods that depend on it have suffered massive loss.

Today, food production is at a record low and around half the population remaining in Syria are unable to meet their daily food needs. Until the mids, agriculture in Syria was the primary economic activity in Syria.In the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) established the Interna­ tional Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) with the aim offocussing on the problems confronting crop and animal production in the Near East and North Africa with special emphasis on rainfed agriculture.
