Areas of Expertise
Soil is a fundamental resource for all types of agriculture. The soil chemical and physical characteristics has a major influence, both direct and indirect, on its fertility and on its possible production. Professional gathering of information about the different characters of the soil and adjusting crops and technologies to those findings is necessary for achieving the best possible products.
Water management requires to gather and analyze data about current and future water resources and water consumption in order to develop short- and long-term plans that will answer all possible water needs including drinking, agriculture and industrial. Israeli water management is considered to be one of the most advanced in the world and our experts are sharing their vast knowledge and experience in this field.
Irrigation and Fertilization
Traditional irrigation uses large amount of water per unit and small quantities are almost impossible to apply. On the other hand, modern irrigation, especially drip irrigation, uses water and nutrients more efficiently while preventing contamination of ground water and can be used in all kinds of crops and habitats. Israeli modern irrigation methods were developed due to the local desert climate and are compatible to both small and large areas.
Plant protection requires to combine together several methods and balancing between different, and sometimes opposite, goals. The goals of plant protection are to prevent loss or harm to production by parasites or diseases, maintaining public health and the protection of other environmental resources. Achieving those goals means discovering and monitoring of damages in an early stage, using non-chemical or environmental friendly pesticides and minimizing the use of pest control spray.
Post-Harvest for Fresh Produce
Postharvest Handling of Fresh Commodities goal is to prevent damages that occur during the marketing process. A wide range of different technologies is used to minimize the potential harm to products throughout the process while adapting the solutions to the local market conditions.
A range of different climate areas, changing topography and a variety of soil types enables the accumulation of knowledge and experience in growing of a wide range of fruits in different environmental habitats.
Quality fruit growing requires to follow carefully after every step of the Value Chain with consideration of the local conditions in order to ensure the highest quality of production according to global standards.
Producing export quality vegetables requires following the Value Chain with great care. Selecting the right species, soil preparing, climate control, irrigation, nutrition, protection from diseases and pests and post-harvest treatment are taken into account together with local market and habitat conditions in order to ensure the best possible product.
Grain and Field Crops
Essential to human and livestock nutrition, growing of grain and field crops means facing significant challenges due to climate change. Technologies and crops must be adapted to changes in precipitation regularity and quantity while protecting environmental resources, while considering local market and habitat conditions in order to ensure the best possible product.

The harsh local conditions in Israel has brought farmers and experts to develop a comprehensive system for growing of dairy cattle. This allows the production of milk under heat stress conditions and give farmers the possibility to monitor every cow online during growing and milking. The implementation of this knowledge makes Israeli average milk production per cow the highest in the world.
The breeding of fish in different frame works, from small family-size to large fish farms, requires vast knowledge about breeding, farm planning and management, product care and marketing.

Our experts are supporting poultry production in both small and industrial scale.
