Comment on land area
100,000 feddans. Contract signed for 100,000 feddans to be given over phases. Originally they received 25,000 feddans. In early 2010, the company submitted a request for inspection, claiming it had completed the reclamation process for the first 25,000 feddans. In 2018, the General Authority for Agricultural Development Projects approved the handover of 17,000 feddans to the company in order to commence the second phase. However, satellite imagery reveals the total area cultivated in 2013 was about 6,000 feddans (2520ha), and, in 2019, has come to 10,402 feddans (4368ha).
