Al-Yardi is famous for agriculture, especially tobacco .The tobacco factory (Reggie) of Al-Yardi village was established exactly after the border on the left side of the road leading to the Swedish and it is still working till now .
The working in the profession of tobacco is considered the main source of al-Yardi 's people livelihood . For this reason when some women were obliged to emigrate to Latakia , they worked also in Reggie that formed their main profession in their village .

Old people in al-Yardi are used to call it al-Jurah( the hole) because it is located between two mountains.
