    I think it can survive in the desert for it doesn't need so much water, but we still need experiments on it to prove that it can grow in arabian desert. And should guarantee that it won't cause ecology disaster .

    Theoretically, it's possible because this plant is resistant to drought and salinity. But over all, you should do a test in the plot that you want to cultivate.

  • Hello everybody

    Can anyone, please, tell/explain me what "GUAR" is?
    I understand that it should be a kind of food that somebody is looking to grow it in desert conditions. As a semi-desert citizen, maybe I have a solution if I understand the question.
    Please do...
    Does Vatika is published in the internet?

    In friendship
