About this book

Egypt's agricultural development has been constrained by the need to conserve scarce natural resources, the pressures of rapid urbanisation, the onslaught of the desert, and technological limitations and restrictive economic structures. This book addresses the issues crucial to achieving and maintaining sustainable agriculture in Egypt.
