Israeli tech helps Indian farmers to grow crops in dry climate

Israeli technology is coming to the aid of farmers in arid Kutch. A Bhuj-based farmer has successfully grown the crunchy, non-spicy bell peppers or capsicum adopting Israel’s poly-greenhouse method.

Haresh Thacker is also expecting a bumper crop of the easy-to-cook hollow chilli, otherwise a cold season crop.

In major parts of the country, capsicum is grown as a winter crop as it requires low temperature while in hilly terrains it is also grown during summers. But Thacker chooses a period between winter and summer so that the crop can be harvested from February to summer. 

"Famers' income will only increase when they will grow new crop varieties. If all farmers grow tomatoes or dates, it will result in bumper crop. When they don't get good price, it results in wastage," he said.
