Native and exotic fodder shrub planting is a major activity in agricultural development in Jordan. There are 20 range reserves in areas receiving 100-200 mm annual rainfall. The total area of these reserves is about 0.6 million ha. More than 13,000 ha have been planted to fodder shrubs, mainly Atriplex nummularia and A. halimus. Some areas inside these reserves were reseeded with fodder shrub seed, mainly Salsola vermiculata, A. leucoclada, and A. halimus.
