Agricultural Research Stations

Since its establishment, AAAID has established several leading research stations in a number of Arab countries. The purpose of these stations is the preparation and implementation of applied agricultural research projects that meet AAAID’s affiliated companies’ investment and development needs that are overseen by AAAID. The research stations also develop and implement plans and programs to transfer agricultural technology and utilize it in the agricultural sector in a manner that increase agricultural productivity.
