Category: Kuwait

Kuwaiti researchers have taken part in scientific projects in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Austria, focusing on methods to develop agriculture in Kuwait despite climatic challenges Dr Habiba Al-Mnai’ from Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) indicated in an interview with Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that she and other Kuwaiti scientists had been involved in applying techniques to enhance quality of fodder and using atomic processes for management of irrigation systems.

Kuwait largely depends on agricultural imports due to domestic climatic difficulties, namely high heat, scarcity of rain and fertile soil. These projects, she explains, aim to enhance agricultural production and minimize adverse impact of factors such as the harsh weather and high salinity in the sand on plants’ growing.

Seeds have been brought from Kuwait and exposed to Gamma radiation, she says, indicating that the work aims at extracting the DNA from some shrubs, as part of the bids to make plants withstand the harsh climate in Kuwait.
