Ziv Shalvi, Deputy Chief of Mission suggested that more Centre of Excellence were planned to help farmers boost yield in India.

Israel is keen to share its latest technologies and innovative ideas with Indian farmers to boost yield and thereby enhance income, said Ziv Shalvi, Deputy Chief of Mission, Head of Administration and Consular and Consulate General of Israel, on Tuesday.

 

Mr. Ziv was present to inspect a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for horticulture crops at Reddiyarchatram near Tamil Nadu in india. He said that more Centre of Excellence covering more crops would be opened and the existing ones strengthened.

 

While Israel has established 29 CoEs in India under eight categories, including fruits, vegetables, flowers and bee-keeping, one centre had been set up at Thali in Krishnagiri district exclusively for floriculture.

 

More centres

 

“We want to establish more such centres covering other crops, including mango, for the benefit of farmers. Dindigul may have one more centre exclusively for floriculture. The latest technologies will help farmers get high yield in a limited area using less water,” he added.
