    Abstract

    Improving agricultural production in Qatar faces a number of challenges mainly related to adverse climatic conditions, quality of soils, scarcity of irrigation water, inappropriate crop rotations, market constraints and ineffective agricultural subsidies. Strategies to overcome these problems may include a) increasing domestic production in Qatar by using a combination of high-tech water-efficient field and greenhouse production systems focussed on high quality end-products to fill gaps in the supply market, and b) land purchase and contract farming of broad-acre crops in more resource-rich countries such as Australia.
