Agriculture and farming in in Algeria

Algeria is a country of many diverse cultures and landscapes. From the Mediterranean Sea in the west to ancient deserts on its east, Algeria has been one of Africa's most influential nations for millennia as it combines three different types: Berber-speaking tribes from Kabylie; Arab settlers from Morocco who brought Islam with them after conquering this region 800 years ago; And French citizens descendants from those Algerians who were enserfed under colonial rule following independence (1962). The people of Algeria grow many different crops on land that has been cultivated for centuries by Berbers before Arabic settlers arrived from across the Sahara desert around A.D 1000 AD . Today farmers there use traditional farming practices such as planting seeds into cereal grains like wheat or olives which then take up all their time once they're ripe; these methods can lead some plants struggling if not regularly irrigated but typically produce good yields when weather conditions allow them enough moisture (like during winter). They also tend small herds or flock goats out along rugged mountain ranges while cattle graze wherever available - both provide milk products used daily within households. Algeria is one of the most agriculturally-rich countries in Africa, with 12% of its GDP from agriculture. Algeria is an arid country with less than 4% of its total land area cultivated. Prior to 1987, all cultivable plots were owned by the state and nominally distributed amongst farmers who worked on them as part-time residents or seasonally migrant laborers through government-run agricultural programs known collectively in Algeria as "domaines agricoles socialist". These farms were abolished after 1987 when they became private property but Algerian law still remains governing one-third (33%) of the area. Algeria has long been looking to get back at the top of its game when it comes agriculture. The country's agricultural sector employs 20% percent of all people in rural areas and their economic development strategy places special emphasis on improving food production. Algeria's agricultural sector is a best prospect industry for the country. Algeria's development strategy places special emphasis on improving food production and quality in order to reduce their import bill. The government has encouraged this sector since it can help Algeria reach self-sufficiency and promote exports, which accounts for 20% of the population working there in rural areas. There are 8 million hectares of arable land available. In an effort to boost agricultural development and production, the Algerian goverment is allocating public land for use in concessional terms with Algerian private investors. The Ministry of Agriculture has a number programs involving joint investment opportunities between themselves and foreign partners. The Ministry of Agriculture works in partnership programs involving Algerian investors or foreign partners who want greater access into Algeria's agriculture market; these partnerships can range from cooperation between state-owned companies and privately funded ventures up until full ownership transfers at some points during investment process - it depends entirely upon what interests each individual desires! Algeria is working to increase its domestic agricultural productivity, but it still relies on food imports for cereals and dairy. In 2018 total foreign trade was worth $8 billion with most of this ($6B) coming from the importation of basic foods like rice or beans needed by residents in everyday life. The Algerian government has pursued an economic strategy designed specifically around agriculture.

Algeria is a country in North Africa with 3.5% arable land, which can be considered an island of cultivation amidst the desert. Most farming takes place on lands that are higher up near mountain ranges like Atlas. Most arable lands are located between those two boundaries. Algeria's vineyards have a tradition that dates back centuries. The Hauts Plateaux region, which includes the southern-most tip of Algeria and extends towards Morocco borders on Mediterranean climate with mild winters and dry summers. The main wine producing areas in Algeria are located in the provinces of Aïn Témouchent, Mostaganem, Mascara, and Tlemcen. Algerian wine was once a prestigious drink for royalty and the elite, but it has fallen out of favor in recent years. The main grapes during peak production were Carignan Cinsaut Alicante Bouschet despite having Pinot Noir which resembles Burgundy's taste profile. In addition, Clairette blanc Ugni Blanc Cabernet Sauvignon Chardonnay Merlot Mouvedre Syrah become dominating grape varieties.
