Palestinian farmers scoop a handful of Azolla aquatic ferns grown in a greenhouse at a farm, in Jabalia in the nothern Gaza Strip, on November 27, 2019. Palestinian farmers are cultivating the Azolla plant due to soaring prices of animal feed in the Gaza Strip, caused by Israeli restrictions on imports and lack of income. The plant has enormous potential as a livestock feed due to its high vitamin, protein, and amino acid content, in addition to its ability to grow without requiring inorganic nitrogen fertilisation.
