Lethal combination

"Although Lebanon has large tracts of fertile land and higher than average rainfall for the region, it remains unable to take full advantage of its agriculture sector. Perhaps the underlying reasons for Lebanon's failure to capitalise on its agricultural potential are a combination of failed export reforms, reliance on imports and state subsidies to supply domestic needs. Without significant change, farmers will struggle to reap a richer harvest."
