This publication is designed to help innovative farmers, machinery manufacturers,
extension specialists, and researchers learn more about conservation
agriculture (CA) in the Middle East, especially the practicalities
of implementing the various CA principles in the field. Although CA was
little known in the Middle East prior to 2005, it has been increasingly adopted
around the world over the past four decades, and has been adapted
to almost all crops, soil types, climatic zones, and farming systems.
