Résumé
In the Iran only about half of the entire area of 165 Mill. ha is effectively used for agriculture and forestry. The major part of the country is represented by the central highland, which results in strong climatic differentiation. The high mountains of the Alborz and Zargos as well as the entire north - Western part of the country are humid areas, whereas the major part is extremely arid. The central highland and the gulf coast territory are characterized by an extreme shortage of rain. A prevailing part of the Iran consists of sterile sand dunes and salines. The central highland has a special disadvantage. Since it mainly consists of barren ground. Irrigation is of uttermost importance for a productive agriculture. The most important traditional irrigation system is Qanate. This very effective system consists of underground water chanals, which accomadate to the demands of the surroundings. The aim of this project is to analyse the agriculture situation thereby gaining a better understanding of the interactions between climate, soil and vegetation to further cultivation possibilities.
