Innovation and Research Station for Crop Production in High Salinity Lands - The Arab Company for Agricultural Production and Processing - the Dairy Unit (Al-Baqir)

Variety Experiments

Experiment Target
Cultivation test of the maize crop in the highly saline lands in the winter and summer plantations To produce seeds and silage fodder.
Panicum fodder cultivation test in high salinity lands in Sudan Providing a fodder crop as an alternative to traditional fodder crops that gives the same or better results, in terms of nutritional value and at lower costs (it stays in the ground for more than 5 years).
Buffel Grass cultivation test (Laredo variety) in high salinity lands in Sudan Providing a forage crop with high nutritional value that tolerates high salinity degrees (relatively) and consumes 25% less water (compared to Rhodes fodder).
Quinoa cultivation test in high salinity lands in Sudan • Providing a field crop with high nutritional value, as its grains contain a high percentage of protein (16-18%) compared to the wheat crop, in which the protein content does not exceed 13%.
• Full use of the plant, through: Use its grains as flour mixed with bread Providing a new grain field crop to enhance Arab food security.
• Using plant leaves as a green food for humans and as a green fodder crop and fodder concentrates for livestock, sheep and poultry.
Study the effect of organic bio-stimulants on the growth and productivity of agricultural crops Test the effect of the biostimulant Fertile Virdi on field crops and vegetablesIn terms of vegetative growth and productivity increase.
Test cultivation of traditional vegetable crops (tomatoes, eggplants, green peppers) in high salinity lands after rehabilitation and reclamation Studying the tolerance of cultivated vegetable crops to varying degrees of salinity before and after soil reclamation (after adding agricultural lime and DAP fertilizer).
Test cultivation of green gram and soybean as leguminous crops in high salinity lands Increasing nitrogen levels in the soil, improving soil fertility, and thus improving crop productivity.
