Indian Agricultural officers on Israel tour to learn new approaches and techniques
Participants will also learn how to use modern technologies, such as satellite imagery, for crop monitoring and decision-making. The tour has been organised by Israel’s Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
The officers visit research centres, farms and other agricultural sites to observe and learn about modern Israeli farming methods. This includes drip irrigation, water-saving techniques and integrated pest management systems. The mission also explores opportunities for advanced technology-based collaborations between India and Israel in smart agriculture and precision farming.
Objectives Of The Tour
The tour's main objective is to enable agricultural officers from different states in India to
learn and exchange new techniques and techniques related to agriculture.
It will provide them with a comprehensive understanding of the latest developments in Israel’s agricultural sector. The tour will also focus on strengthening collaboration between Israel and India in scientific research, research and development, technology transfer and capacity building.
The officers will gain valuable insights into the latest technologies in agricultural production systems, water management strategies and crop protection methods used in Israel’s highly efficient farming sector.
The course will also enable participants to network with leading Israeli researchers and farmers, which could help India develop better food production systems.
The tour is expected to provide Indian states with much-needed technological know-how and information on modern agricultural practices, which will help them employ new approaches and techniques in crop production, soil management and water utilization.
The knowledge exchange will also help enhance food security and employment opportunities in rural areas.
The delegation, which includes representatives from Haryana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Assam, and Mizoram, will complete the training program on April 12.
