  An Investment in the Future
Modern dairy and poultry farms in Saudi Arabia are among the most efficient and productive in the world .
Under the Sixth Development Plan (1995-99), the Saudi Arabian agricultural sector is expected to grow at an average annual rate of six percent. The plan will diversify the production base through greater investment in large agricultural projects that use renewable resources and modern irrigation techniques for minimal water use. It will also encourage investors to establish shareholding companies as well as small privately-owned farming units. Thus, the agricultural sector will meet an increasing percentage of the country's food needs, increase exports and continue to provide food for humanitarian assistance to other countries.

Saudi Arabia will continue to promote the careful use of water resources adding new chapters to its agricultural success story while strengthening the nation's economy and food security .
