The Estidama Center offers comprehensive programs to evaluate vegetable production in Saudi Arabia, including agricultural techniques and pest management


Group 37


Through training and consultation, Estidama develops agricultural systems and conducts research and applied experiments in the areas of protected agriculture.


Vertical farming, also known as indoor farming, has gained a lot of interest in the recent years, since the market is getting more demanding, in terms of quality of the produce which should be pesticide-free, tasty and available all year.
Plant nutrition and fertilization practices are important components of the good agricultural practices (GAP).
Estidamah’s IPM program incorporates a wide range of practices, including crop rotation, cultural control measures, biosocial control, and other alternative techniques.
Soilless Culture and Growing Media
In the Kingdom, soilless culture is considered an ideal solution to overcome problems of soil-borne pathogens, and a promising technique to control water and nutrition consumption.
Estidamah research programs focus on improving the crop management cultural practices that apply good agriculture practices (GAP) for all cultivated crops to achieve maximum production with high safety standards.
Green House Technology
Estidamah tests and adapts different greenhouse technologies to maximize the production and improve the quality of vegetable crops.
Water Use Efficiency and Water Quality
To increase water use efficiency, Estidamah focuses on modern techniques that help to reduce cooling water demands and increasing yield production per cultivated area


Workshops are one of the most prominent training methods through which experiences and knowledge are exchanged, and information is shared about sustainable agriculture science and research.





We devote ourselves passionately to organizing distinctive events that shed light on issues of protected magnificence. Let's bring together experts and interested people to exchange ideas and knowledge
