Agritech 2015 – attracts government ministers from across the globe E-mail

The 19th International Agricultural Technology Exhibition, one of the world’s most important exhibitions in the field of agricultural technologies, was held in Israel from 28 to 30 April. The Agritech Exhibition is held once every three years at the Israel Trade Fairs and Convention Center in Tel Aviv.

The three-day event presented ground-breaking technologies and insights into post-harvest methods and processes, and ways of tackling the challenge of post-harvest food losses. The event brings together key industry experts, attended by agronomists, farm owners, government representatives, heads of municipalities, researchers, project managers and scientists.

With the world’s population expected to grow from 7 billion today to 9 billion by 2050, the need for improved agricultural productivity has never been greater. One of the ways to enhance productivity is through the stimulation of innovation in agricultural and food technologies, from breeding new crop varieties to developing sustainable crop-protection and postharvest technologies. Other issues that need to be addressed include livestock health, feed solutions, aquaculture, soil-less agriculture, irrigation technologies and precision agriculture.
