Center for Desert Agriculture

 How can we feed our world without destroying our planet


As the global population approaches 10 billion by 2050, the science and business of agriculture must do all it can to ensure a secure, safe, nutritious and sustainable food supply for generations to come. To accomplish this task, we, at the Center for Desert Agriculture (CDA), are committed to finding smart and efficient solutions to produce high value crops and staples that will require less water, fertilizer and pesticides; can grow on marginal lands; and have reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The CDA is also committed to empowering the next generation of Saudi Arabian citizens to be global leaders in sustainable agriculture.
