Drought affects half of the cultivated areas in Iraq



2018/8/4 20:08

BAGHDAD (AFP) - Agriculture Minister Mehdi al-Qaisi said on Saturday that the country's cultivated areas fell by half compared to last year due to drought and low levels of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

"If we want to compare the cultivated area this year with the previous year, the damage is 50 percent. The water plan has excluded some vegetables because there is not enough water to cover the summer plan," Qaisi told a news briefing.

The ministry has banned the cultivation of rice, maize and some other crops that require a lot of water for irrigation because of the severe drought in the country this year, as well as to prevent the cultivation of maize, sesame, sun flower and cotton.

According to local officials, the losses to rice farmers will amount to 34 million euros this year, and drought will affect livestock due to the death of mosquitoes living in the marshes as a result of thirst.

Prime Minister Abadi said the government plans to extend water to the farmers, especially for the strategic wheat crop, but will reduce the land allocated for the cultivation of other crops that consume a lot of water.

Turkey has already delayed its plan by filling the reservoir of the giant Elso dam - the world's third-largest water reservoir - in response to Iraqi calls following a drop in the Tigris water level by half after Turkey began to store water in the dam starting in early June.

Iraq has been suffering for years from the low levels of water Tigris and Euphrates, which depend on them to secure drinking water and irrigation plants.
