Irrigation is a significant denominator in ensuring sustainable agriculture for high yield, high-quality production. Effective irrigation management allows the growth of crops in dry seasons and arid areas and overcomes the dependence of crop production on rainfall.

Furthermore, irrigation increases crop yields and improves production quality, thus increasing income for the growers and ensuring food security.

To gain optimal results, the effective usage of irrigation focuses in three main areas:

  • The understanding of the irrigation principles and concepts
  • Design of irrigation – selection of the appropriate method and system
  • Proper operation of the irrigation systems

To employ the most appropriate irrigation practices, knowledge transfer to all of those involved in irrigation is necessary. The most practical method of knowledge transfer is training. Irrigation training can cover a wide range of training programs to meet the actual training requirements.

The Avnon Academy has developed a comprehensive range of training programs

For a wide range of subjects covering all irrigation and irrigated agriculture requirements for knowledge.
