Agriculture in the Negev: Today's Desert Pioneers

Post by pr126 »

Meet some of the miracle workers who are pushing forward the frontiers of desert agriculture. Get your popcorn and family, and watch this entertaining 40-minute video that will amaze and inspire you. Hear about the creative irrigation systems and growing techniques of crops like the jojoba plant, wine grapes, peppers, and tomberries – tomatoes the size of blueberries. Learn about the unique aquaculture, from fish, to coral, to genetically modified prawns, made possible because of the talented scientists at Ben-Gurion University and the pioneering farmers of the Negev desert.
