वाळवंटी देश म्हंटला कि, डोळ्यासमोर येते विस्तीर्ण पसरलेली वाळु आणि रुक्ष वातावरण. ओमान देश ह्या बाबत खरच खूप सुदैवी आहे. ओमान ला जसे वाळवंट आहे तशीच निसर्गाची उत्तम साथ देखील आहे. इथल्या डोंगर रांगांमध्ये सौंदर्य आहे, दऱ्यांमध्ये वाहते पाणी आहे आहे ओमानी मेहनत करून ह्या उपलब्धतेचा फायदा घेत , निसर्गाची काळजी घेत उत्तम रित्या शेती करत आहेत ती सुद्धा संपुर्ण सेंद्रिय. वक़्बह हा ओमान मधील भाग अत्यंत हिरवागार, सुंदर आणि शेतीने समृद्ध असा आहे. इथे वाळु सोबत माती देखील आहे. थोडी माती आणि वाळु ह्यांच्यात सर्व प्रकारची फळे, पिके, भाज्या असे विविध सकस उत्पादने घेतली जातात. कुठेही रासायनिक पद्धत अवलंबली जात नाही.

Al Waqbah is characterised by tourist sites and many natural sites, such as high peaks, caves, natural valleys, farms and pure water sources. It is also famous for its “Aflaj” or ancient irrigation system or water channels and waterways that rely on rainwater.

Many agricultural crops are grown in this town during the summer and winter, where all types of date palm trees and vegetables, such as carrots, onions, garlic, squash, eggplant, tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, parsley, pepper, pumpkin, wheat and barley are grown, along with lemon, bananas, mangoes, oranges, olives, pomegranates and figs.

Recently, strawberry, cherry and hibiscus have also been planted as the favourable weather in the region aids the growth of these fruits.

One of the most important agricultural crops planted in the town is grapes of different varieties that are spread across farms and homes. Villagers are keen on growing grapes from the beginning of the season.” As soon as summer begins, farmers begin harvesting grapes, citrus and fruits, but, vineyards with their varieties have the greatest interest among farmers in the town.

There are several other varieties of grapes, such as Al Tai’fi, the white and the imported, which are successfully grown in the town. As the month of June begins, farmers start to prepare for the harvest. They gather at homes where they give to relatives, friends and neighbours. Farmers take care of the trees, trim them, and use organic fertilisers to get the best harvest of the delicious grapes.

अशी आहे  सुंदर वक़्बह ची ओळख…
