Arava Expo Tour

Professional Tour – January 2014

A Business group of 9 people from Tanzania and Uganda visited Israel in January for an agriculture tour.

The 7 day course included professional lectures on different agriculture technologies that have been developed in Israel including water management, dairy farm management, growing vegetables in greenhouses, and crops and irrigation methods.

As well as the lectures, the group got to visit farms and facilities to see first-hand the methods being implemented. The visits included dairy farms, several fruit plantations and research centers. Part of the lectures and visits took place at the two day Open Day Arava Exhibition in the south of the country, the largest annual agricultural event in Israel, which they attended.

While in Israel the group also spent some time touring around the sites including the Old and New City of Jerusalem and the north of the country including Nazareth.
