Indian Express reports:
The Indo-Israel Centre for Excellence in Vegetables at Gharaunda, near Karnal, the first of its kind in the country, will be inaugurated on December 6.

The centre demonstrates advanced farm technologies of Israel to maximise cultivation and achieve quality production of vegetables. The state’s other Indo-Israel centre, which focuses on excellence in cultivation of fruits, is likely to be inaugurated in the first quarter of 2011.

Impressed by the highly advanced agricultural techniques demonstrated in Haryana, Punjab, and also Karnataka and Gujarat, have asked Israeli experts to develop a similar project in their states. The experts, however, already have their hands full with the ongoing work in the five states mentioned above.

The Gharaunda centre focuses on the use of polyhouses, insect net-houses, walk-in tunnels and other plastic cover techniques to increase the yield of vegetables.

Talking to The Indian Express, Haryana Joint Director, Horticulture, Dr Arjun Singh Saini said: “By using such protected structures, a farmer can get multiple cycles of high productivity in tomatoes, cucumbers, capsicum and cauliflowers in one year, as compared to only one or two cycles in open production. Farmers can also make good profit from off-season demand,” he said.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 14 years and 30,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
