The international agricultural exhibition Agritech 2018 opened at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds with the participation of 200 agricultural companies, industry and start-ups and major research centers, and the position of Minister of Economy and Industry, Eli Cohen and Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel. The exhibition was attended by 50 delegations of ministers from around the world and 80 business delegations.
Ofir Leibstein, CEO of the Kibbutz Industries Association and Chairman of Agritech, said at the opening of the exhibition that the huge event attracting tens of thousands of visitors from the world highlights the huge gap between the success of Israel's agriculture worldwide and the miserable situation of the farmers in Israel. Water cuts, unusual weather damage, arson and agricultural terror in Shaar Hanegev and the north. The Israeli government must understand that the contribution of agriculture is measured far beyond direct output and has a large share of our international standing, and to protect the farmers in particular in the face of the damage caused by terrorism. We provide technological solutions for agriculture all over the world and take a significant part in helping arid countries to strengthen food security. Internationally, Israel's agriculture is a light unto the nations. I expect the Israeli government to treat agriculture as the light of Israel.
As part of the exhibition, a professional conference was held with the participation of researchers from around the world who will focus on developing agriculture in desert and semi-arid regions. According to Liebstein, the achievements of Israeli agriculture and industry in desert bloom have created billions of shekels in revenue for the state and its workers, making Israel a global leader in increasing food production in countries and regions that have been considered unsuitable for agriculture. The conference was attended by 16 speakers, including speakers of some 50 lecturers, some of whom were experts in plant protection and special plants that will present international projects in arid regions in China, India, Africa and other regions. Another important issue discussed at the conference is the field of precision agriculture. Israel is also a "start-up" in agriculture, with original developments to improve crops. During the exhibition, guided tours will take place and visitors will be able to see how the various developments are being implemented in the Galilee and in the Negev, and how areas that until a few decades ago were desert and deserts produce vegetables, fruits and flowers that make their way to the world
