In a bid to “replicate the success’’ of Israel in the farm sector, the Gujarat Government plans to set up a farming educational institute in collaboration with Israel, offering post-graduation & Ph.D programmes with practical training and degree from Israeli universities.

This was indicated by Chief Minister Narendra Modi at a national convention on ‘The Next Frontier of Agri-Business & Technology’ and ‘Agri Asiatech 2012’ in Gandhinagar recently.

“Gujarat is in talks with Israel to set up an agricultural educational institute in collaboration with its universities to offer post-graduation and Ph.D programmes.... The negotiation is in the final stage,” Modi said.

Orna Sagi, , said: “Bilateral relations with India were at a new height…To share our experience and facilitate transfer of technology, we are going to set up three centres of excellence in the state of Gujarat, each dedicated to vegetables, mangoes and post-harvest practices for dates & bananas, respectively.”

The two-day event on September 3-4 was organised by Industrial Extension Bureau and Gujarat Agro Industries Corporation Ltd with Israel as a partner country. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is the national partner and PriceWaterhouseCoopers is the knowledge partner, a CII release said.
