Daya studies Israel’s agri-technoloyg

A delegation led by primary industries minister Daya Gamage undertook a study of Israel’s use of modern technology in agriculture when they toured that country recently.

They paid special attention to micro-irrigation as it makes considerable, productive and appropriate contributions to the development of agriculture.

Israel is a country that recycles 60 per cent of its water.

Visiting the Watec exhibition, the Sri Lankan delegation observed how water-related issues are resolved.

They were given a presentation on agricultural development when they met with officials of the foreign affairs and commerce and industry ministries.

Also participating in a business forum by the Sri Lanka-Israel chamber of commerce, they tested equipment that predicts nutritional requirements of trees.

They were also made aware of how as many as 32 litres of milk a day could be obtained from a cow.

The Sri Lankan delegation also inspected the use of greenhouses in organic farming and toured a vineyard at Tahal.
