Field crops and vegetables cultivation constitutes the main food source for the rapidly growing world population. In the coming years, these agricultural branches will need to increase yields to feed the world high quality products, while minimizing human environmental footprint under continually decreasing resources.

In Israel, field crops and vegetables supply a large part of the local consumption and take a significant part of the cultivated land. These are highly technological and dynamic branches of agriculture, which rely on sophisticated agro- and bio-technology. Continuous scientific research allows for innovations to be incorporated into the practical work leading to elite varieties, new agrotechnical approaches, innovative plant protection and weed control strategies. 

Today a major part of vegetable and herb production takes place in various types of sheltered growing facilities including greenhouses, net houses, tunnels, and more. Advanced methods such as precision agriculture are utilized for crop production. New varieties are introduced continuously, and export of propagation material and agricultural knowledge is expanding.
