The industrial zones peter out, and suddenly date palms are growing on both sides of the road, not in the random patterns of an oasis but in the long straight rows of cultivated orchards.
Then the first chicken hatchery appears, and soon patches of green vegetables and alfalfa. The landscape is unmistakably desert and hardly looks promising for farming.
But agriculture is big business in Saudi Arabia, from Hail in the north to the valleys near Taif in the west to the terraced hillsides of the southwest, made possible mostly by decades of government subsidies and irrigation with water pumped out of caverns deep underground. That dependence is increasing as the young population continues to grow at a rate that outpaces production.

It is not just a land grab. We want it to be sustainable, to look at what the local people need.
There should always be a clause that part of the output should go to local people if they need it. We are talking about buying from farmers, producing food.
You invest, buy from local farmers and produce there. This includes investment in infrastructure — irrigation, farm-to-market roads — and thus creates jobs.
