    As part of the cooperation in agriculture between Israel and India, 26 senior horticulture officers from 12 States across India, will leave for Israel next week for a training program on modern irrigation and fertigation Technologies. Officers from Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu, will participate in the program, organized by MASHAV, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation, and CINADCO, the Centre for International Agriculture Development Cooperation in Israel's Ministry of Agriculture.
     
    The training program aims at sharing Israel's proven experience and research in irrigation and fertigation with Indian experts, so that they will be able to adapt these modern technologies to the local needs and conditions in India. Most of the participating officers are already involved in Indo-Israel Centres of Excellence located in their home states, and they will impart the knowledge they have accumulated in Israel with experts and farmers in their respective states. The training program in Israel will be followed by a workshop in India, led by irrigation and fertigation experts from Israel and from India.
     
    Mr. Uri Rubinstein, Agriculture Counselor in the Embassy of Israel in New Delhi, said: "Israel is a world leader in irrigation and fertigation technologies. The adaptation and implementation of advanced Israeli agro-technologies and know-how by Indian experts, has proven time and again to significantly enhance productivity and improve produce quality, for the benefit of the Indian farmers and the consumers".
