Hazeva –Ya’ir R&D Station
In order to increase the profitability of vegetable farming in the Arava Valley it is necessary to extend the growing season. The system proposed in this study, provides the climatic conditions that allow greenhouse peppers to be cultivated throughout most of the year. Research also focus on developing and testing a management program for pepper cultivation to prevent disease and deal with problems arising from the extended growing season. Results of the study will enable Arava farmers to successfully compete in the global produce market.
