Quote: “To believe we can supply food with this land was a dream,” says Danielle Abraham, director of the International Friends of Volcani. “To undertake agriculture successfully, a country needs four key resources: water, land, human resources, and export markets. With none of these resources readily available, Israel was forced to invest in research to ensure agricultural success. Now, we are one of the global leaders in agricultural technology, and our produce is very good.”
