Great Man-Made River, GMMR, citrus fruits, arable land, camels

Most of the arable land and pastureland of Libya is in Tripolitania. Cultivation in the eastern and southern regions is sporadic and dependent on rainfall. In 1990 agricultural output amounted to about 7 percent of Libya’s yearly GDP. Principal crops include tomatoes, wheat, potatoes, barley, citrus fruits, dates, and olives; principal livestock include sheep, goats, cattle, camels, and poultry. The Great Man-Made River (GMMR) project is designed to transport water from aquifers in southern Libya to the coast and irrigate about 75,000 hectares (about 185,000 acres) of land.
