Buraydah

      town, Najd (Central) region, north-central Saudi Arabia. It has long been a commercial rival of ʿUnayzah to the south, at one time controlling the export of Arab horses and monopolizing the camel caravan trade of Arabia. Now a principal oasis and agricultural centre, it has extensive date, lemon, and orange groves; other fruits are grown, and cattle and sheep are reared on large experimental farms. Pop. (2004 prelim.) 378,422.
