Growing vegetables in Oman

National Company for Agricultural & Livestock Development LLC. Nothing unusual about this Omani company‚Äôs name. Agreed. Nothing is unusual about Mr Abdus Sattar Basra, too who manages this company.  Except that he is a Kapurthala born poet at heart, taught agriculture till mid nineties in Oman after coming from Pakistan in 1961. It is amazing that he has single handedly transformed the 100 odd acres of barren land in proximity of sea (high humidity) into an all year round techno-production heaven for all kind of vegetables.

Hats off to you Mr. Sattar and to your grit and determination. You have really shown that environment is no limitation if  you want to do it and know how to do it and have patience to harvest the fruit of your labor.
