You can choose to develop yourself in one of the following areas:
The Greenhouses and Hydroponics tour provides the perfect opportunity to visit sophisticated automated greenhouses that make use of indoor and outdoor, state-of-the-art equipment, such as humidifiers, trellis, etc. to maximize production and profitability.
View hydroponic greenhouses that are constantly perfecting the science of planting roots in a shallow stream of recalculating solutions which provide all the elements required for maximum productivity.
The Dairy Farming tour explores the A-to-Z solutions for the establishment and managing of dairy farming projects, including solutions for design, construction, installation and supervision involved in dairy farm projects.
Learn about automated modular systems especially designed for intensive dairy farm management as well as fully integrated software that collects information about each animal and stores, analyzes and displays the data in easily accessible reports.
The Poultry Farming tour allows you to explore the latest technologies involved in the running of, and managing of, day-to-day operations in Poultry Farming.
The tour will cover Broiler Housing, Turkey Breeding, Tier Battery Cages, Layer Hens Housing, Free Range Layers, Heavy Breeders, Egg Grading & Packing and more.
The Aquaculture Farming tour will take a close look at the comprehensive integrated aquaculture solutions for the entire fish production cycle expertise. This tour provides the perfect opportunity to see a complete package from business development concept through system and production line engineering design and set-up, as well as operation and maintenance. A definite “must-see” experience for Aquaculture Farmers.
The Precise Agriculture tour takes an in-depth look at farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. The goals set here are to define a decision support system for whole farm management, in order to optimize returns on inputs, all while ensuring that resources are protected and preserved by utilizing technological capabilities such as, data collection and analysis, which can be displayed in a variety of devices: cellular, computer and all types of remote control and IoT.
The Seeds and Nurseries tour is a journey that will explore research methods, plant breeding, seed production and processing, sales and marketing of hybrid vegetable varieties. View first-hand the developments of new hybrids with novel traits of quality, taste, flavor, uniformity, high nutrition values, shelf life, combined with high yield, in an environmental friendly process. The hybrid varieties are suitable for the commercial outdoor or greenhouse growers, as well as for plant raisers in the professional sectors.
The Postharvest Treatment tour is an informative tour focusing on the handling stage of crop production immediately following harvest, including cooling, cleaning, sorting and packing, all aimed at maintaining the best quality at all times. The instant a crop is removed from the ground or separated from its parent plant, it will begin to deteriorate, therefore caring for crops does not stop after harvesting. The postharvest treatment is an integral part of the agricultural process and the beginning of another important journey to ensure the final produce remains healthy, whether for fresh consumption or used as an ingredient in a processed food product.
The Irrigation & Fertilization tour will introduce you to leading global producers and providers of tailor-made irrigation solutions, all incorporating a wide range of cost-effective and customized technologies which are shared worldwide. There are many varied requirements when it comes to irrigation and fertilization. Learn about high quality solutions that deliver increased productivity per unit, which leads to higher crop yields, minimizes risks, and saves precious non-renewable resources. Drip irrigation in particular, was pioneered by an Israeli inventor.
Join us in meeting the leading providers of potash, phosphate and technology-rich specialty fertilizers. These fertilization specialists understand the critical inputs that farmers need to increase their yields and improve the quality of their crops.
The R&D Centers tour will give you the perfect opportunity to see first-hand the extraordinary resources and intelligence needed to ensure the future of the varied farming enterprises. Join us in exploring the research on a variety of topics and areas of special expertise such as:
• Agriculture under arid conditions
• Agriculture on marginal soils
• Irrigation using effluent and saline water
• Crop cultivation in protected environments
• Freshwater fish farming under conditions of water shortage
• Minimization of produce losses through use of the latest pest control and post-harvest storage methods
• Breeding and development of new strains of crops and domestic animals better suited to the adverse conditions which already exist in many parts of the world, and which are likely to become even more prevalent in the future
