OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTMENT IN IRAQI AGRICULTURE
Irrigation: Essential to agricultural production, includes new systems, center pivot, drip, land reclamation/restoration and the renovation of the existing canal-based flood irrigation systems.
Seed: New and appropriate varieties matched to climatic conditions and cultural and management practices.
Fertilizer: Required to capture the benefits of improved seed varieties.
Agricultural Equipment: Agricultural equipment is in high demand in Iraq.
Storage, Transportation and Handling: With the exception of food grains (wheat and rice), Iraq currently lacks the capacity to efficiently store and transport feed grains and horticultural products.
Commercial Farming: To realize potential productivity gains, a larger scale and input and technology dependent agriculture will need to develop. Traditionally the National Extension Service facilitates this change. This will need to be the case in Iraq – but does not preclude a strong role for the private sector as well.
Agribusiness: Will depend upon a healthy, diversified and viable production agricultural sector. The value chain concept best illustrates this as production agriculture to a large extent supplies the inputs which agribusiness transforms into higher valued products. Opportunities currently exist, for example, as feed mills could serve as the link between feed grain producers and livestock producers, and lead to the development of more intensive and efficient livestock production.
