Delta Tuban is the main agriculture zone of Lahj Governorate. It has a fertile agricultural land that is built over centuries from Wadi Tuban flood sedimentation through its two branches being Wadi ?Kabeer ? (major) and Wadi ?Sagheer ? (minor). Agriculture communities faced a great challenge in recent years due to high cost of irrigation due the fuel prices ? raise. Communities are starting gradually to use solar powered pumping systems for irrigation. In the area there exist several water canals diverting flood water into the agriculture land. Each canal has got a water user society that managing flood irrigation through each canal locally named as ?Oubr ?. This project aimed to assist 26 farmers groups to obtained solar powered and dripping systems for irrigation. The total agriculture land benefited from this project is 574 Fedan owned by 25 farmers ? families with 776 inhabitants being 386 male and 390 females. Further, a large labor community are benefiting from the ongoingagriculture activities wen participation in farm labors. The reviving of traditional crops sharing in exchange for irrigation will be used for project sustainability.
