The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released their yearly report on the agricultural policies in the countries that are members of it on Monday. It stated that Israel is "spearheading" agricultural technology.

The report praises measures taken by the Israeli government to reduce regulation and increase transparency in the agriculture sector, as well as plans to adapt to climate change.

The report shows that, like most countries that are members of the OECD, Israel supports its local agriculture, but in a different manner: It applies lower pricing to locally-sourced products, such as milk, eggs, etc.

The OECD supports that public and private groups encourage the development of agricultural technology, much like in Israel.
