Durum wheat is a staple food of strategic importance, and its production is a major farm activity in Morocco. It has important implications for the national economy of the country, as Morocco is the second largest producer of durum wheat in the West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region.
This publication assesses the impact of the durum wheat program in Morocco as part of a regional effort initiated within the West Asia and North Africa Dryland Durum Improvement Network (WANADDIN) project.
It provides an overview of durum production and research, and highlights the importance of efficient seed delivery systems to encourage farmers to adopt new varieties. The book is an excellent resource for policymakers, agricultural and extension officers, researchers, and students of agriculture.
