His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, visited the wheat farm in the Mleiha region to inspect the agricultural activities.
The farm, situated in Sharjah’s Mleiha area, features an irrigation pond with a capacity of 48,000 cubic metres, drawing and pumping water for irrigation through a pump room housing 9 pumps capable of pumping 430 cubic metres of water per hour.
In the integration of the second and third stages, the farm utilises 300 tonnes of high-purity seeds sourced from diverse locations. Before planting, 24,000 tonnes of organic fertilisers are applied, and varied organic fertilisers are used post-planting, tailored to the growth stage of the wheat crop.
As the Sharjah wheat farm enters its second year, it signifies a new phase in the food security project directed by the Ruler of Sharjah, aiming to provide premium, organic and highest-protein wheat crops free from pesticides and harmful substances.
