Israel stands at the international forefront of advanced agriculture. It’s a world leader in agricultural technologies, agricultural research and development, and desertification – all these despite an average rainfall of less than 1 inch per year.
The Central Arava region, which is located in the south of Israel, is a designated agricultural area. With over 600 farms that grow vegetables and fruits, the majority of which is for export. All use progressive methods based on the most advanced technology and knowledge in the world. Each farm is a competitive production unit, continuously striving to increase output, improve product quality and reach new markets and profits.
Programs can include lectures, professional tours of farms and entrepreneurships in the Arava and in other locations relevant to the group course.
