AchievementAREA issued an agricultural research manual in 2000 developed to Yemeni agriculture and contained several technologies comprising a number of promising cultivars for major crops. A part them technologies related to programs and the five research themes. Through which several agricultural productions constraints are solved in different agro-ecological zones. Under genetic improvement, seven new wheat cultivars were released (Imran-2, Imran-4) in Albonn, (Shibam, Hajja and Bahooth-14, Bahooth-15) in Taez, Ibb, Central Highlands and Northern Highlands, Sarwah, Marib, Hareeb and two cultivars for Seiyn and Hadhramout for Wadi Hadhramout and the last cultivars was barged locally mseiyn and is characterized by salt tolerance. It is expected that cultivars will contribute to increase in wheat yields in Yemen. The onion-breeding program released two onion cultivars, which were distributed with in onion growing regions in Yemen. Bafuteim improved or Bafuteim yellow improved because popular due by desired marketing qualities. Other research programs included lentils and Phaseolus vulgaris cultivars, which were distributed to different regions of the country. Concurrently, different mango cultivars were released which is high yielding with desirable qualities. In the crop management research, AREA released several technologies in the form of package of technology for new cultivars, Control of agricultural pests, among which termites, several fungal diseases in vegetable and fruits. Technologies were released in weed control particularly, in irrigated system in the context to integrated weed control. In livestock research emphasis is given for improve local briefs of sheep’s and goats, Particularly wild sheep, which were, improved genetically in addition to livestock nutrition research. Treatment of crop by-products with urea to enhance its nutritional value, Is of practical value to animal product. In post harvest technology research, several recommendations were issued among which methods of onion harvesting to minimize losses during storage and preservation of dried red pepper quality during storage.
DescriptionAgricultural research system in Yemen is young. In the mid 50’s the first research department was established in Al Koud region, belonging cotton crop. Ten years later, named as Agricultural Research Station. In the 70’s the agricultural research was expanded to include additional crops and regions, and reorganized, creating a new Agricultural Research Center . Different research departments were found in Tuhama and Southern Highlands , and developed later to an agricultural research station in Ta'az region. This consequent development in agricultural research resulted establishment the Agricultural Research and Extension Authority (AREA) in 1983 by cooperation with World Bank and Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO). AREA consists of a main headquarter located at 100 km South part of Sana'a nearby Thamar city, and 8 research stations and 6 national centers representing different agro-ecological conditions in the country.

International agencies such as FAO. UNDP and ICARDA who sponsored the institute Eviction in the past an CxteCtea tO COntaInS thor sponsored for the local and regional development, and progress.
DescriptionGovernment Research for improving production in Lebanon dates back to the establishment of Tel Amara Station in the Bekaa Valley immediately after World War II as an agricultural training center. Later, in 1957, it became the Department of Agricultural Scientific Research of the Ministry of Agriculture. Other stations were established at Tourbol (Bekaa) for animal production, Abde (North) and Sour (South) for citrus. In 1964, the Department of Agricultural Scientific Research was reorganized as an autonomous public institution and became the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (LARI) working under the supervision of the Minister of Agriculture. More research stations were established at Fanar (Mount Lebanon) for animal health and agriculture, at Kfarshakhna (North) for soil, irrigation and farm machinery research. Both Tourbol and Kfardane were later, in the late seventies, handed over to the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
