Abstract
The portion of the country of Egypt which is exploited agriculturally is confined to a narrow strip on each side of the Nile from the boundary of the Sudan to near Cairo, and the fan-shaped delta north of Cairo. This area has from ancient times been irrigated by basin irrigation during the Nile flood, and the soil has been built up by successive annual deposits of silt. All but a small portion has now been converted to canal irrigation.
