India seeks Israeli agri technology

Jerusalem: Eighteen agricultural officers from seven Indian States are on a 15-day visit to Israel to learn about new innovative approaches and smart technologies in the key sector that can add more value to the farmers.

The agricultural officers from Indo-Israel Centers of Excellence (CoE) are taking part in an extensive state course, "Managing Centres of Excellence: Developing value for farmers", organised by Mashav Agricultural Training Centre (MATC) in Israel under the Indo-Israel Agricultural Project (IIAP), a press release said.

The programme looks to introduce the agricultural officers from partnering States to the organisation, management and challenges of Israel's unique model of regional agricultural Research and Development. "The course aims to create a framework for discussion and analysis of the current work plans of the CoEs. It will also evaluate the possibilities of implementation and adaptation of new strategies, approaches and technologies, taking into consideration the needs and challenges in the agriculture sector," the release issued by the Israeli Embassy in New Delhi said.

The participants have been visiting model CoEs in Israel and learning more about irrigation, fertigation and advanced agricultural technologies since their arrival on March 29th.
