Ariel noted that Israel, interested in increasing its exports of agricultural products to Russia, is ready to share agricultural technologies with Russia.
"There are several fields in which Israel can share technologies with Russia, mainly in the fields of prolonging the storage life of agricultural Product. Ariel added that "We are ready and willing to share with you our experience of building and maintaining dairy clusters. And the third field may be sea fish Farming."
Another area of cooperation with Russia, according to the Israeli agriculture minister, could be the mechanization of agricultural work, "which can at least double the output and increase productivity per unit area."
Russia and Israel agreed in September to deepen their cooperation in the spheres of agriculture, industry and high technologies.
Last year, Russia agreed to import Israeli poultry products following four years of negotiations. After a lengthy four year period of testing procedures, Russia has approved the import of poultry products under the supervision of the Veterinary Services of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Israel.
