DA studies proposal of Israel’s water management firm for agri ties
The Department of Agriculture (DA) is now studying the proposal of an Israeli water management firm to explore investment opportunities in the country’s agriculture sector as well as water management.
This was revealed by the executives of Tel Aviv-based Tahal Group during their meeting with Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol at the DA Central Office last week.
The Israeli firm particularly expressed interest to explore advancement on agricultural development in the country particularly on aspects of water resources, water and wastewater systems, integrated agriculture development, sustainable solid waste projects, as well as oil and gas infrastructures.
Piñol then directed Undersecretary for Operations Ariel Cayanan to work closely with the group for possible areas of agricultural collaborations such as dairy farms, greenhouses for vegetable production, and corporate farming particularly using Solar Powered Irrigation System.
