Texas Agritech Delegation to Israel: April 2-9, 2016 

Learn how Texas can benefit from the world-class innovation and technology that transformed Israel’s water-starved desert into a fertile oasis.

Join Texas Dept. of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller and the Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce in the Texas Agritech Delegation to Israel April 2-9, 2016.

Israel’s agricultural sector is a direct result of the country’s need to over- come a scarcity of water. Due to close collaboration between scientists, ex- tension services, farmers and industry, today it is known for high yield and efficient production and very high standards of development.

Israel leads the world in agricultural engineering:

• Water and irrigation technologies
• Labor and energy saving systems
• Dairy herd management
• Sophisticated sensors
• Packaging systems
• Management software
• Greenhouse technology
• Post-harvest technology
• Fertilizers and fertigation
• Crop protection• Seed research and technology

Texas’ agriculture industry has an economic impact in the state of over $100 billion a year and is the state’s second largest industry behind oil and gas. Texas leads the US in the production of beef, veal, sheep, goats, cot- ton, hides and skins, and exports about $7 billion a year in food and fiber products to other countries.

Who should attend?

  • • Businesses operating in the livestock, agriculture, biotech and manufac- turing sectors seeking new technologies and business opportunities
  • • Investors and analysts looking for new technologies and investment opportunities
  • • Universities involved in Agritech research and development
  • • Local enterprise partnerships and economic development teams
