Garlic is one of the oldest plants known in Egypt, where it has been found engraved on the pharaohs temples.

Egypt enjoys a comparative advantage in the high productivity of this crop.

The Egyptian garlic occupies a prominent place in the world among the important export markets for garlic.

This comparative advantage made Egypt the highly competitive in overseas markets for the export of garlic in light of the global trade liberalization agreement.

The cultivation of the Egyptian garlic is enormously expanding due to the great success in the cultivation of the Egyptian garlic in the new lands, the high productivity, the excellent quality, and the low use of the necessary pesticides to resist pests.

Egypt exports garlic to the Arab countries, African countries, south Africa and eastern and western European countries.

The Egyptian garlic is exported fresh, dry or in the form of oil.
