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.
The window to this industry is Agritech – a Triennial International Agricultural Technology Exhibition. It is one of the world’s premier exhibitions in the field of agricultural technologies.
The 19th International Agriculture Exhibition and Conference is scheduled for Tel Aviv, Israel,April 28-30, 2015.
At Agritech, hundreds of Israeli developments in agro-technology will be presented, encompassing a variety of fields such as green houses, irrigation, water management and dairy farming.
Agritech traditionally attracts many agricultural ministerial delegations, decision-makers, experts, practitioners and trainers in agriculture, as well as thousands of visitors from Israel and abroad. In 2012, approximately 4,500 foreign visitors attended the exhibition.
