India to adopt Israeli technology in agriculture: Minister

Ladwa (Haryana), April 6 (IANS) Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh on Wednesday said India will utilise Israel’s water conservation and agriculture technology to bring down production cost and help the nation manage its water resources well.

“Israel’s agriculture technology is known to the entire world. Israel, where water scarcity looms large, has emerged as one of the major producers of fruit and vegetables,” he said while addressing a function at the Centre for Sub-Tropical Fruit, run here jointly by India and Israel.

Speaking on the occasion, his Israeli counterpart Uri Ariel said both countries will show to the world how to utilise water and get more produce.

“We are committed to our understandings with India (in the fields of agriculture and water management),” he said, adding that he was happy to see how both countries were coming closer to develop better agricultural practices.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and state Agriculture Minister O.P. Dhankar praised Israel for its agricultural technology.

Khattar said it was a matter of pride that a number of projects were being run in Haryana with Israel’s cooperation. He said new technology would help the entire state.

Israel’s Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon and other officials were present on the occasion.
