Algeria’s traditional agriculture has long been characterized by practices rooted in its diverse climate and geography. Historically, agriculture in Algeria has focused on staple crops such as wheat, barley, and oats, alongside livestock farming, particularly sheep and cattle rearing. Traditional methods have often relied on manual labor and conventional farming techniques, adapted to local conditions.

However, in recent years, Algeria has been making progressive moves towards integrating green technology to enhance sustainability in its agriculture sector. Recognizing the importance of modernizing its agricultural practices while preserving the environment, Algeria has been investing in various initiatives aimed at promoting sustainable agriculture.

One key aspect of Algeria’s move towards sustainability is the adoption of green technologies such as precision agriculture, drip irrigation systems, and hydroponics. These technologies enable more efficient use of resources such as water and fertilizers, leading to increased crop yields while minimizing environmental impact.

Additionally, Algeria has been exploring renewable energy solutions to power its agricultural operations, including solar-powered irrigation systems and wind turbines. By harnessing renewable energy sources, Algeria aims to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions associated with agricultural activities.

Furthermore, the government of Algeria has been actively promoting sustainable agricultural practices through policy initiatives and incentives for farmers. This includes support for organic farming, agroforestry projects, and the implementation of sustainable land management practices.

Algeria Cluster includes a University, a School of Agriculture and an organic pedagogical farm supported by several companies active in green technology and software development for green.
