The present intervention relates to the second agricultural development project. This second phase follows the first phase, which was first involved raising agricultural productivity in two gouvernorates by introducing improved farm mechanization and a strengthening of agricultural credit, cooperatives and extension services. The project aims to provide technological packages already tested and demonstrated and also offer the farmers the option to mechanize certain farming operations by making farm machinery readily available by purchase through a network of private dealers, or, alternatively, on hire from private operators and cooperatives.
The objectives of the second Agricultural Development Project are: a) support the development of improved agricultural pratices in seven rice growing governorates of the Nile Delta through the provision of appropriate farm machinery, incremental farm inputs, and extension services; b) assist in the modernisation of the national seed industry; and c) increase the efficiency of the agriculture credit system.
The main beneficiaries of the project are: Principal Bank for Development and Agricultural Credit (PBDAC), rice producers, agricultural cooperatives, and other actors of the Egyptian rice system.
