Goa looking at Israel for farming solutions: Vijai Sardesai

Goa is looking at Israel to increase productivity and profitability in the farming sector, Deputy Chief Minister Vijai Sardesai said Monday.
Sardesai, who is currently on a private trip to Israel along with Goa Forward Party colleagues and state ministers Jayesh Salgaonkar and Vinod Palyekar, was hosted at the prestigious Agricultural Research Organisation, Volcani Center, which is under Israel's ministry of agriculture.
Talking to PTI over phone, Sardesai said he discussed the use of cutting edge technologies, like precision farming and agro-nanotechnolgy for food quality enhancement and plant protection, model farms for sustainable farming practices, soil conservation, waste water irrigation, new breeding techniques and new strains of crops among other things, with the Israeli officials.
"We also looked at solutions that could improve the quality of life of farmers in Goa, increase their productivity and profitability, while offering all Goemkars (Goans) access to wholesome and safe food," he said.
