About the product

This review focuses on important issues in the field of regional agricultural development. The lead article, in English, focuses on 'Standards and regulations for selected agricultural inputs: fertilizers, animal feeds and veterinary drugs'. The Arabic section has three papers. The first deals with the modern instruments to integrate rural women in productive and developmental activities. The second paper outlines the causes of rural poverty and the ways to fight it, with an emphasis on the role of international organizations in assisting in this effort. The third, and final paper, attempts to establish an integrated system for the standardization of agricultural inputs and commodities.
