The research showed a different way of growing fig trees ( Ficus carica L.) so that farmers could benefit from it by improving yields. This type of soil-free culture may allow irrigated farms to boost their fig productions from 4500 kg/ha-year up to 81,000 kg/ha-year; that is an 18-fold yield increase compared to traditional farming.
