A personal note:
The Model Farm for Sustainable Agriculture is a challenging and complex project.
These include dozens of experimental plots measuring about 10 dunams, with a total area of about 400 dunams, including a new almond plantation, field crops (wheat, vetch, corn, chickpeas and sunflower) and areas for examining new fodder crops (Moringa , Sesame and more). The project involves dozens of researchers, research engineers and field personnel. At the moment we are busy buying equipment for the model farm and within a year we will begin our experiments. We hope that we will examine, represent and assimilate as many approaches as possible to more sustainable agriculture that will benefit the environment and the farmers of Israel, and even the world.

A personal note:
As a member of the “founders group” and as the actual scientific director of the Model Farm, I find the fascinating challenge in defining the goals and in paving the way for action.
The day-to-day relationship with professional partners in many different fields makes me believe that this dream of establishing this unique Model Farm is really coming true!
