Israel and Africa

Israel has been teaching their drip irrigation to countries in West Africa. The drip system, developed in the 1960s, allow farmers to have more efficient use of water and allows them to care for specific plants without over watering. Erratic rains and food shortage have left countries like Senegal in dire straits. Now instead of having one harvest a year from rain, drip irrigation allows three harvests per year.

G-d bless!!!
