In the ever-evolving world of agriculture, innovation and technology play pivotal roles in addressing the myriad challenges faced by farmers today. Salicrop, a company at the forefront of agricultural advancement, is making significant strides in enhancing tomato production through its groundbreaking technology. Our recent project, which covers an impressive area of 700 hectares and utilizes leading local tomato varieties, is a testament to our commitment to supporting the agricultural community.
Over the past three years, Salicrop has embarked on an observational study to assess the impact of our technology on tomato yields. The findings have been nothing short of remarkable, showing a substantial increase in yields of 10-20% across the board in Israel. This year marks a significant milestone for us, as it serves as the commercial year validating the importance of our technology, especially in supporting farmers operating under challenging conditions.

The Journey to Innovation
The journey began with a simple vision: to empower farmers and enhance crop productivity through innovative solutions. Understanding the unpredictable nature of agriculture, characterized by varying climatic conditions and the constant threat of pests and diseases, Salicrop set out to develop a technology that could withstand these challenges while increasing crop yields.
Our focus on tomatoes, a staple crop with significant economic and nutritional value, allowed us to address a critical area of need. By collaborating with local farmers and utilizing the best of local tomato varieties, we were able to tailor our technology to suit the specific requirements of the region's agriculture.
Observational Study Insights
The three-year observational study conducted by Salicrop has provided invaluable insights into the effectiveness of our technology. By meticulously analyzing the data collected over this period, we observed a consistent increase in tomato yields, ranging from 10-20%. This increment not only signifies the potential of our technology to enhance productivity but also highlights its role in ensuring food security and sustainability.
A Year of Validation
This commercial year has been a pivotal one for Salicrop, serving as a validation of our technology's importance in the agricultural sector. The tangible results observed in increased tomato yields demonstrate the potential of our innovation to revolutionize farming practices. Our technology not only aids in overcoming adverse conditions but also contributes to the economic well-being of farmers by boosting their crop output.
Supporting Farmers in Challenging Conditions
At the heart of Salicrop's mission is the desire to support farmers, particularly those facing rough conditions. Our technology is designed to be resilient, offering farmers a reliable solution to improve their crop yields despite the challenges posed by climate change, water scarcity, and soil degradation. By providing farmers with the tools they need to succeed, we are helping to create a more sustainable and productive agricultural ecosystem.
As we move forward, Salicrop remains dedicated to refining our technology and expanding our reach to support more farmers around the globe. The success of our project in Israel is just the beginning. We are committed to continuous research and development to ensure that our technology remains at the cutting edge of agricultural innovation.
In conclusion, Salicrop's activity in processing tomatoes over an area of 700 hectares with more than 17 farmig organizations with leading local varieties has proven to be a game-changer in the agricultural sector. Our three-year observations and the commercial validation year underscore the critical role of our technology in enhancing yields and supporting farmers under difficult conditions.
