Agriculture is the dominant industry in Central West Asia, supporting more than three quarters of the population in most countries and contributing around a third of gross domestic product (GDP). Many people in the region are living in poverty, including smallholder farmers, and malnourishment is still widespread. With agricultural development often limited by conflict, political unrest and volatile climates, improving farming methods to prevent harvests being destroyed by pests and diseases is vital.
