Established in the mid 1980’s, this desert-based irrigated forage operation has provided Rhodes grass and other forages to the livestock industry within Oman. Recently, this farming enterprise has changed ownership, with the new owners focused on upgrading essential irrigation equipment and machinery.
The new owner has a vision to significantly increase forage production through improvements in infrastructure and by placing an emphasis on agronomy practices. In time a goat livestock and poultry facility will also be introduced to compliment the forage production venture.
Intelact International’s consultancy involvement includes assistance with identifying critical infrastructure replacement needs, hands on support with planting new crops, advice on the agronomy programme and staff training. Because water is a precious resource in the desert, training will also be given on best practice irrigation management.
