Abstract

This study aims to identify the summer crops that were planted in the Levant from the end of the Umayyad period until the end of the first Abbasid period. In particular, the study focused on presenting the agricultural products in the Levant at that time, and showed some of these crops such as (productive trees, grains, vegetables, etc.), and their places of cultivation. Their importance in the economic life in general, and their role in the industrial and commercial activity during that period were two major issues of concern. This is mainly because these crops were constituting a revenue and an economic income to the state. Finally, the study outlined the major irrigation methods utilized by the farmers in the Levant.
