Piloting the cultivation of Alo Vera as a high value crop in saline environment in the lower Jordan Valley of the West Bank
The project aims to conduct a pilot study to assess the tolerance of Aloe Vera towards prevailing salinity conditions in the Jordan Valley, in order to examine the viability of Aloe Vera as an economic-environmental sustainability solution for small-scale farmers through cultivating 3000 Alo Vera seedlings, managing the demo and monitor the growth and survival rates of the plants, facilitating the market linkages between ADS and Al Hathanawi Co. for mature Alo Vera sale, selecting two women cooperatives, conducting training for women farmers on cultivation, how to care for plants and harvesting, etc. and producing joint video with other GEF/SGP grantees to disseminate the project desired results.
