Fadak Farm for date trees, affiliated with the Imam Hussein Shrine, has won first place as the best agricultural project in Green Day Fifth Festival held by the College of Agriculture in Karbala University.

A considerable number of agricultural projects, honey farms, and the association of agronomists participated in the festival.

Fadak project, which depends on well water, aims to cultivate 2000 acres with unique types of dates.

It is worth mentioning that the project was named after a farm that was given to Lady Fatima al-Zahra by her father Holy Prophet  Muhammad, peace be upon them and their progeny, but was taken away by the enemies of Ahlulbait, peace be upon them shortly after Holy Prophet’s martyrdom.
