dc.description.abstractThe project aims to improve the productivity of degraded rangelands through efficient utilization of limited rainfall. Nearly 48% of farmers in the Muhareb community own flocks, with an average flock size of about 159 head. About 52% of farmers in Um Al Naám own flocks, with an average of 125 head; about 63% of farmers in Muhareb community own a small flock (average 28 head), or a medium flock size (30%, average 293 head), or a large flock (7%, average 751 head. However, about 72% of farmers in Um Al Naám own a small flock, with an average flock size of 36 head. A medium- sized flock is owned by 26% of farmers, with an average flock size of 256 head. Only 1% of farmers own large flocks, with an average flock size of 1540 head. Farmers who cultivate larger areas own larger flocks, although this only occurs on a small proportion of the farms (4.7%). Over 67% of farmers in the selected communities own small flocks, and 28% own medium sized flocks. There is a positive relationship between flock size and area cultivated.en_US
