Agritech 2015, one of the world’s premier exhibitions in the field of agricultural technologies, gets underway tomorrow in Israel. The 19th annual Agritech International Agricultural Exhibition & Conference will focus on post-harvest systems.
Hundreds of Israeli developments in agro-technology will be presented, encompassing a variety of fields such as green houses, irrigation, water management, dairy farming, aquaculture, genetic makeup of plants, solar-powered irrigation system, and smart indoor farming.
This year’s event includes 196 Israeli exhibitors and 57 foreign exhibitors.
Some 8,000 international visitors are expected to attend the April 28-30 event.
“The State of Israel is one of the world’s leading pioneers in today’s agro-technology industry. Necessity – the lack of natural resources, shortage of water, and the scarcity of arable land led to the development of successful methods, technologies and products in a multitude of agricultural fields. A significant part of Israel’s academic research is focused on agro-technology, creating the infrastructure for many start-ups in this field,” reads a press statement about the event.
