Study trip of the DLG e.V. - German Agricultural Society Committee for Operations Management to Israel

Innovation, pragmatism and solution-oriented optimization approaches beyond the national horizon - the 2023 study trip of the DLG e.V. - German Agricultural Society Committee for Operations Management this time led to innovative Israel around Tel Aviv and the Negev desert. In addition to the framework conditions for #startups#agtech and #foodtech, the focus was also on the application potentials for innovative drip irrigation, alternative or cultivated protein sources #cultivatedmeat and the success criteria of successful #Milchproduktion under heat and drought with Jonathan Amir with the contributions of Miloubar and Hachaklit. The challenges with regard to #Nachhaltigkeit#Klimawandel and disruptive transformation processes could thus be analysed and discussed with leading experts for DLG. Pragmatic approaches to complex issues serve as inspiration for the upcoming challenges of #Landwirtschaft.
