Production

Regional Production:

The total vegetable-growing area in 1989 was about 18% of the total cultivated area in Egypt. It reflects the high domestic consumption rate which is one of the highest in the world. Vegetable crops showed considerable development during 1984-1989. Total vegetable-growing area expanded by 21% from 436 758 ha in 1984 to 529 562 ha in 1989, while total production increased by 30.5% from 9, 216, 014 t to 12, 028, 793. Production increase is therefore clearly due to higher yields resulting from the use of modern technology rather than expansion of cropped area. (CIHEAM,1992)
