Bahrain - Agriculture

Only 2.9% of the land is arable. Agriculture accounts for only about 1% of the GDP. Ninety farms and small holdings produce fruit and vegetables, as well as alfalfa for fodder. The date palm industry has declined sharply in recent years due to heavy demands on the limited water supply, and dates have become a luxury item. In 1999, 12,000 tons of vegetables and 22,000 tons of fruit crops were produced. The government's goal is for output to meet 16% of demand, compared with the current 6%.
