Agriculture land and production in Yemen

Yemen is a country in the Middle East that has many different climates and landscapes. It's 90 per cent desert, with some semi-arid land for growing crops like wheat or barley; however most of it consists of sand dunes covered by little rain at all. The Rub al Khali (Empty Quarter) Desert alone covers nearly half this size nation's territory! There are also highlands where people grow bananas on steep slopes far above sea level because there's so much moisture coming down from Mount Tawahi which provides them enough water year round.
Agriculture is the mainstay of Yemen's economy, generating more than 20% (20.4%) since 1990 according to the Central Bank of Yemen). Agriculture employs over half (54 - 58%) working population in 2003) but it accounted only 13%. Numerous environmental problems hamper growth--soil erosion sand dune encroachment deforestation; however ,the greatest problem by far are scarce water.
Yemen is home to some of the most sophisticated methods for water conservation and seed adaptation. Yemen's difficult terrain, limited soil , inconsistent rainfall has fostered this advanced technology in agricultural production. Yemen is an arid country with low rainfall but rich natural resources like topsoil which make it possible for them produce high yields.
The food security in Yemen is one of the most serious problems. 21% or more than 2/7 households are facing some form of hunger with an increasing number being malnourished children who require immediate help to survive due lack access poorest resources needed for sustainable life including clean water and nutritious diet. Food production must be taken up as soon , otherwise drastic consequences will occur which includes continuous rise rates child mortality rate poverty increase population extinction.

Yemen agriculture production

The most common crops in Yemen are cereals such as millet, corn (maize), wheat and barley. One of the most interesting, if not intriguing aspects about Yemen is that they have been cultivating fruits for centuries. From tropical (mangoes) and temperate (peaches).
Agricultural products: grain, fruits, vegetables, pulses, qat, coffee, cotton; dairy products, livestock (sheep, goats, cattle, camels, poultry), fish. Export commodities: coffee, dried and salted fish.

Yemen coffee production

Yemen has a long history of processing coffee. In the 17th century, Sufi monasteries on the southern tip processed Yemeni beans over 500 years ago and were pivotal in establishing not only Yemen as a producer but also Arabica as one of world's best coffees because they grew it better than anyone else! These unique conditions made them perfect for growing this particular variety. Coffee production in Yemen has been on the decline for years due to war and transportation restrictions, but new data shows that 9000 tons are being produced per year. This may not seem like much compared with countries such as Brazil or Vietnam.

Yemen Livestock production

The livestock sector in Yemen is a primary source for rural farmers, but the lack of water and fodder have made it difficult to produce enough. Diseases such as Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR), Foot-and Mouth Disease(FMD) or Rift Valley Fever can also prevent access into international markets making profitability decrease even more.
