Traditional intensive agriculture impacts the ecology and environment and becomes increasingly unsustainable.
Organic farming target is to produce high-quality food with low environmental impact, without synthetic inputs such as chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers The FRC research programs work on biodiversity preservation and ecological balances to ensure better sustainability of Fujairah agriculture.
The FRC researchers aim to study the genetic variation of the rich Fujairah wild plants using a multidisciplinary
approach between biology, botany, and many other sciences like data sciences and advanced computing.
The FRC Genetics and genomics research is used in breeding to support higher production and cultivation of crops resistant to pests, pathogens, and drought.
The UAE sets its food and water security strategy a top priority, and desert agriculture is crucial for self-reliance and food security.
Desert agriculture plays a vital role in helping UAE reduce its food production deficit and make its food system more resilient to climate change. The FRC researchers are developing new technologies to grow food locally and efficiently and competitively produce high-quality crops for the local market.
