The agricultural research and development conducted in Israel by KKL-JNF’s R & D stations and the Israeli agricultural economy as a whole can serve as a shining example to the rest of the world. 


That’s the way it seems when we listen to what Dr. Elizabeth Finkel, a science writer based in Melbourne, Australia, has to say about the reasons for her most recent visit to Israel. KKL


“The world needs to feed a population of nine billion in the next fifty years with diminishing water and arable land and higher temperatures.  Obviously there are lessons to learn from Israel which has turned its deserts into agricultural powerhouses.  I’ve come for a study tour to explore what those lessons are.”
