Experience Israeli agricultural innovation

Agritech Israel 2012

We would like to invite you to join a South African delegation of agro technology related businesses, farmers and researchers that will explore the most advanced innovations in irrigation, greenhouses, dairy farming and post-harvest treatment.

Israel is known for its success in developing technologies, products and methods that utilize existing agricultural conditions in an advantageous manner and we would like to share these technologies with South African entities at Agritech Israel 2012.

Through this amazing journey of research and development, Israel uses 60% less water, much less land and 2.5% of its work force (compared to 17.5% in the past) – to produce 20 times more!

Agritech Israel is a leading exhibition and conference within the agricultural field that showcases Israeli and International agricultural technologies. The event has allowed over 7,000 foreign visitors from different countries to interact with the leading international technology companies.
