Saudi Arabia to stop buying barley from local farms
RIYADH , The Saudi government will stop buying locally grown barely from the 2003/04 season and has urged farmers in the desert kingdom to replace the crop with produce that requires less water, a newspaper said on Sunday.
The kingdom, among the world's main importers of barely, has been trying to discourage farmers from growing barley, so as to conserve water, and has tried to encourage the use of locally grown alfalfa as a substitute.
Al-Riyadh daily said the Trade and Agriculture Ministry told traders and importers to stop colouring imported barley to distinguish it from local barley from October because the state-run Grain Silos and Flour Mills Organisation would stop buying domestic barley starting from the 2003/2004 season.
A report by the US Department of Agriculture's foreign agricultural service in March estimated the kingdom's local barley production for the current marketing year at 100,000 tonnes and expected demand for imported barley to remain strong.
