On the 26th June, the Crops Department held a field day and a seminar on table grape projects in Lebanon.

Hosh Sneid is a 3-year-old state-of-the-art vineyard, covered in plastic tents, to plan the production for the next few years and delay the yearly seasons. The tents aim to protect the grapes against weather hazards such as hail-frost and sun burns. 

The solid structures, executed by the Irrigation & Equipment Department, were able to withstand days of winds, snow and hail. As a result, the outcome of grape varieties has turned out to be very satisfactory, and even exceeded expectations in some cases.

The management expressed its conviction that “with the current economic conditions, the need for export has dramatically increased. Out of all fruits, Lebanese grapes remain the highest in demand”.

The Management’s strategic plan consists of promoting, investing in, and developing export-geared businesses, and grapes seem to be topping the list of strategic export crops.

It is worth noting that the anticipated tonnage and quality are closely linked to the DF teams’ efforts. To this end, Production Manager, Eng. Nohad, has put in place an Intergrated Pest Management (IPM) system, as well as good cultural practices.

The field visit was followed by a seminar & QA session at the Chtaura Branch.

Melon NOURHANE F1 at Biskra

This year, the seed department at Debbane Agri has introduced the NOURHANE F1 variety in Biskra in the South East of Algeria. In the past, NOURHANE F1 was intended for open field segments in the western, central, and eastern regions of the country. Its introduction in the region of Biskra in covered fields has produced excellent results, which was reflected by the good behavior of the plant, a fruit size that exceeds 3 kg, the firmness of the fruit (Absence of fruit rot), a growth cycle ranging from 60 to 65 days and its exceptional sweet and fragrant taste. Given the advantages that NOURHANE F1 has offered in greenhouses; namely the precocity and firmness, we recommend that this variety be planted in the early cycle in December in Biskra.
