Israel to boost ‘White Revolution’ in Haryana


The ‘White Revolution’ in Haryana is set to get an Israeli boost. A leading state in milk production, Haryana would now benefit from the techniques and experience of Israel, leader in milk production in the world, for increasing the average milk production.

Haryana’s Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Minister Om Prakash Dhankar is leading a delegation from Haryana to Israel.

The agriculture ministers of both Haryana and Israel agreed on further cooperation in the fields of horticulture, dairy and exchange of research among students and specialists in universities of agriculture, horticulture and animal sciences.

The average milk production of milch animals in Israel is 32 kg per day and it leads the world in milk production. Haryana would now adopt techniques and experience of Israel to increase average milk production in the state. Israel is already working on five centres of excellence in Haryana.
