According to the latest report, Egypt aims to boost the agricultural area by 500k feddans (Acres) during 22/2023, in addition to increasing feddan productivity by 15%-20% through improving wise water irrigation and seeds management.

The African country targeted increasing agriculture exports to $3.6 bn during 22/2023 compared to $2.4 bn in 20/2021, the report said.

The report also noted that Egypt seeks to raise self-sufficiency from wheat to 65% by 2025 compared to 45% in 2020, and maize to 32% in 2025 compared to 24% in 2020, in addition to achieving self-sufficiency from red meat.
