    .
     
      Eden said that North Africa’s agricultural production is widely recognized, and its quantity and quality are increasing
    .
    The bactericidal active ingredients in Araw are not limited by the residual amount, and the pre-harvest interval is very short, allowing growers to apply the product before harvesting

    .
    Araw is very helpful to major export markets such as the EU, because the EU has a clear maximum residue limit, and pesticide residues may lead to rejection of exports

    .
     
      In Egypt, grapes and tomatoes are the two main crops, and most of Egypt’s fruits and vegetables are exported to the European Union
    .
    In January 2020, the Egyptian Parliament approved a new law on the regulation of organic agriculture, aimed at reducing the use of traditional synthetic pesticides

    .
     
      In Tunisia, agricultural products account for more than 6% of the total export value, especially the export of organic products is growing

      This agreement is based on early positive developments.
    In Spain, Araw's label has been expanded to include a range of new crops

    Due to the similarities in climatic conditions and agricultural practices, Spain’s experience can be directly transferred to these North African countries
