Israeli technology leads in agriculture

What began as a survival mechanism in a water-challenged part of the world has become a potential means of solving food shortages in the world.

Proving that necessity is the mother of invention, Israel used science and technology to create novel ways of efficiently providing water and food for her citizens. By employing trailblazing technology, Israel not only produces much of its own food but also exports US$1.3 billion worth of agricultural products every year.

For example, records show that Israel leads globally in the recycling of water, with over 85 per cent of its wastewater recycled.

There are multiple Israeli technologies that are making farming more efficient and sustainable. These are drip irrigation, water recycling, biopesticides, biofertilizers, intelligence (which monitors fields and helps farmers make better decisions), robotics (which makes it possible for robots to carry out different farming operations, including picking fruits from trees), and sensors (which can relate with plants to detect what nutrients they need and when they need to be watered).  

The Water Ways edge

Water Ways Technologies Inc. (TSXV:WWT) tapped into this Israeli edge, focusing on expanding drip irrigation technology to different parts of the world.

As an agro-tech company which specializes in providing water irrigation solutions to agricultural producers, Water Ways designs, supplies and installs an irrigation system for application in various agricultural and aquacultural operations. It currently operates in Canada, China, Mexico, Peru, Laos, Ethiopia, and Georgia.

With over 400 customers in 40 countries, WWT executes innovative turnkey smart irrigation projects and delivers advanced agro-tech irrigation products.

Drip irrigation, which uses cloud-based, computer-controlled precision delivery, is noted to be the most efficient way to irrigate and nourish plants around the world. The technology ensures that less water, as well as less chemical, is used in farming, as the drippers deliver water and nutrients to each plant according to the needed quantity. That makes it eco-friendly, creating greater yields and higher quality. In other words, it minimizes waste and maximizes productivity.

Interestingly, WWT ensures that this advanced agriculture technology is accessible around the world. It focuses on purchasing, assembling and exporting these Israeli technologically advanced irrigation products and systems manufactured by leading companies and distributing them to its global clients.

It designs, supplies, installs and maintains irrigation systems for application in various agricultural operations. By offering its experienced and professional agronomical, engineering and logistic services, the company aims to allow its clients to focus on efficiently growing their crops, their project and their business,

With the growth of precise irrigation technologies in the global market, Water Ways Technologies has started to investigate the development of its own solution. The main objective of our research & development efforts is to bring to market a technological solution which will enable agricultural operators to make more intelligent, data-driven decisions, as well as automate time-consuming and labour-intensive processes.

The US$5.2-billion drip irrigation market

According to, the global drip irrigation market size is estimated to be worth US$5.2 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach $8.3 billion by 2027, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8 per cent during the forecast period in terms of value.

When broken down into crop types, the fruits and nuts segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

“High-profit margins and increasing export demand for fruits and nuts have increased the adoption of drip irrigation products in the fruits and nuts segment,” noted the report.

“The high export demand for fruit and nut products and the high margin of profits have helped in driving the demand for drip irrigation systems, especially in the fruits and nuts segment,” the report added.
