The Embassy of Israel to South Africa cordially invites you to:



TUESDAY 28TH FEBRUARY 2012, 15:00-17:00

The highlights of Israeli Agriculture include:

  • Advanced pomegranate production, with locally developed varieties reaching an average yield of 25-35 tons per hectare and resulting in improved quality and taste.
  • The growth of new high-yielding, high-quality pathogen-resistant vegetables
  • Application methods for growing crops in regions with unsuitable soil
  • Greenhouse systems, including specialized plastic films and heating, ventilation and structure systems, enable Israeli farmers to grow more than three million roses per hectare per season and an average of 300 tons of tomatoes per hectare per season, four times the yields of open fields.
