Israel has grown in terms of economic influence lately. Focus on foreign investment and resources has increased during the past few decades. The country approved a pipeline deal with Europe in August 2020 to use Tamar deposits to supply natural gas to the continent. With these changes, there is another area that has seen improvements: Israel’s agriculture.
Companies like Vertical Field and Netafim have also signed agreements beforehand to allow the use of their technology in the UAE. The fact that multiple companies can invest in different avenues is a sign of the effectiveness of technology in assisting the improvement of Israeli agriculture.
India has also been a consistent collaborator regarding agriculture. The two countries signed a three-year agreement this year for further development of agriculture. The Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-Camp) has organized an Agri Grand Challenge to address issues in the Indian sector of farming. The agreement looks to find new technology to “enhance the shelf life of produce” and minimize losses from outside issues. One of these is the white stem borer infestation that has affected coffee crops immensely.
The collaboration of the two countries will bring forth new ways of combating prevalent obstacles. An issue in Israel can be solved in India, and vice versa. The benefits of a cultural and shared relationship can reap massive rewards if properly managed and cared for.
Between the technology and deals with foreign nations, Israel’s agriculture has managed to set itself up to grow past its limitations. The country is now in a position to ensure the continual growth of its industry in ways that will provide stability. Modernization can help foreign countries when under the control and direction of the government and citizens who benefit from the changes. It also ensures that the new technology is shared with other countries that have similar issues.
