DUBAI, November 26, 2014: The Hydroponic farming leader of MENA region, Pegasus Agritech has implemented the technology of soilless farming, to meet the food and water scarcity issues of the world today. The water situation in the Middle East is precarious. Many countries in the Middle East face problems of water shortage due to the semi-arid climate and an increasing demand created by population and economic growth. Middle Eastern countries like the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Iraq and Saudi Arabia are facing distinctive problems that necessitate instant global attention.
Pegasus Agritech is supporting MENA region to attain maximum food security and increased fresh water supply, with a production technique which uses 90% less water than traditional agriculture. They grow crops hydroponically without the use of any pesticides or fertilizers which contaminate the ground water. In most of the Middle East Countries, renewable freshwater will barely cover basic human needs within two decades. The Middle East countries have faced many ecological distresses recently; and shortage of freshwater availability is the foremost of them.
Millions of people in this region already lack access to sanitary water; as fresh water resources are becoming increasingly scarce. Agriculture uses 85 percent of water in this region. It is common to misuse land by heavy irrigation in the Middle East. The overuse of water in traditional agriculture is also affecting the countries' already short water resources.
