Keeping the legacy, Netafim’s stall had a wonderful turnout as it attracted clients not only from the farming community but also the corporate. As the keeper’s of drip technology which originated in Israel, we also registered our presence at Israel’s pavilion along with other Israeli companies.
Netafim experts actively participated in spreading awareness about the latest developments in the field of Drip irrigation and Automation to the farmers who are willing to adopt advanced technology for their field.
Is was a matter of pride for us as we were a part of the delegation of ministers from Israel, led by Mr. Yair Shamir, Agriculture Minister of Israel, who signed a Joint declaration with the Govt. of India extending the Indo-Israel Agricultural Cooperation Project (IIAP) to its third phase (2015-18). 27 Centres of Excellence have already been established under the project in various parts of the country for fruits and vegetables. It is worth mentioning that Netafim India has its drip irrigation system installed in Centre of Excellence at various locations.
At these centres, experts from Israel have been training Indian officers as well as farmers in nursery management, protected cultivation, post harvest management, use of poor quality water for irrigation, precision farming of micro irrigation and other best agricultural practices.
