Agriculture technologies 2017 - Israeli expertise feeds the world
Sunday 14th of May
This video is made being based on Agriculture technologies in Israel. Agriculture in Israel is a highly developed industry: Israel is a major exporter of fresh produce and a world-leader in agricultural technologies despite the fact that the geography of Israel is not naturally conducive to agriculture. More than half of the land area is desert, and the climate and lack of water resources do not favor farming. Only 20% of the land area is naturally arable. In 2008 agriculture represented 2.5% of total GDP and 3.6% of exports. While farm workers made up only 3.7% of the work force; Israel produced 95% of its own food requirements, supplementing this with imports of grain, oilseeds, meat, coffee, cocoa and sugar. The development of modern agriculture was closely tied to the Zionist movement and Jewish immigration to Palestine in the late nineteenth century. The importance of agriculture in Israel's economy has fallen over time, accounting for decreasing values of GDP. Disclaimer: Please note, this is only video embedding website.
