The scope of the assignment is to define the limits of each cultivated lot of land according to the plans, and to assess the production of each land according to its area, based on the quality of the crop and other indicators.

Phase II

The objective of phase II was to update the information for the year 2003 and to prepare a situational analysis of the present Wheat cultivated areas in Bekaa region, the result of which was a computerized listing with details of names, lands, areas, lot numbers and quantities produced.

    • Review of Wheat Subsidy Applications.


    • Survey of cultivated land areas and supplementary lands not covered by the requests.
