Egypt has been famous as agriculture country since the ancient era. Most of Egyptians horticulture and food crop plants are scrubs or a small trees with shallow root system. These plants are susceptible to drought and have a little or no hydro-orology effect. Egyptian agriculture is mostly dependence on the Nile water (82.59 %). Desert areas can be ecologically reclaimed or restored to agronomic productive areas, if socioeconomic, cultural and political factors permit the restoration. Afforestation is turned a desert to a woods or forest as climate change agent and water reservoir. Survey found that Egyptian land was greener than Indonesian. The available of the Nile water should be managed as effective as possible to accelerate Egyptian afforestation project. Egyptian may look and imitate Indonesian success in re-greening Gunungkidul region of Jogyakarta with Wanagama forest. The Afforestation program affect agricultural practices in the current and in long run of Egypt.
