Israeli Agricultural technology and its applications within the BRI
Growing global population have pushed agricultural demand to an all-time high. Thus, realities of the food security dilemma have brought agricultural scarcity to the forefront of policy making. Through effective resource management the aims of producing ever increasing yields on par with environmentally conscious international norms will be realized, but at what cost? China, the second largest economy and home to 1.4 billion people faces the impact of food security issues on a scale not seen by any other nation member of the international community. In this position China, looks to become a global trend setter in adapting to the complex agricultural expectations thrust upon it. The question then becomes, what steps are needed to build efficient and integrated systems that will increase yield without triggering environmental degradation?
Per China’s 13th 5-year plan, improving the environment and ecosystems are paramount in the advancement of China into a moderately prosperous society. Thus agricultural innovation and green solutions to agricultural production in Chinese markets could prove to be the best means to reach China’s environmental and socioeconomic goals.
