Israel Feeds the World

The Land of Israel has few natural resources, which has propelled Israel's best scientific minds to become world leaders in agricultural technology.

Israeli agriculture exports account for nearly $4 billion annually. In the Third World, Israeli agricultural technologies can spell the difference between surplus and famine, between life and death.

For example, Israeli agriculturalists have developed revolutionary drip irrigation systems which provide massive savings in water consumption. Israel is a leader in hi-tech seed genetics, crop yields, hothouses, dairy farming, fish farming, egg farming, computerized feeding systems and much more.

In light of the recent surge in global food prices, these advances benefit economies worldwide.

Israel's greatest agricultural experts and companies came together recently at its 18th International Agricultural Exhibition. With thousands of visitors from 115 countries, Israeli companies explained their cutting-edge products, all designed to better feed the world.
