Rajasthan, Israel join hands for olive cultivation

By IANS,

Rajasthan is getting ready to grow olives. The state government has joined hands with an Israel-based company to cultivate olive and dates in the desert state.

‘We have tied up with an Israel-based company by forming Rajasthan Olive Cultivation Ltd (ROCL) for growing olives and dates in 40,000 hectares of land the state,’ Agriculture Minister Prabhulal Saini told IANS here Thursday, without naming the Israeli firm.

He said that the company during the first year would start to use Israeli technique in government-run agriculture farms at seven different places in the state.

‘We have identified 30 hectares of land each in Baror and Anoopgarh in Sri Ganganagar district, Lunkaransar in Bikaner, Tinkaradi at Alwar, Kishanpura in Jaipur and Sandhu in Jalore for growing oilve and dates,’ Saini added.

Initially an investment of Rs.60 million is likely to be made on the project.

Saini said that agriculture marketing board and Israeli company would contribute Rs.15 million each in the project and rest Rs.30 million would be taken from the banks in the form of loans.

He said that saplings of olive and dates would be imported from Israel and added that it takes three years for a tree to yield fruits after sowing.

    We must explore other era like for the development of the state and the people. It will surely motivate the farmers, those who r loosing there intrest in the farming, and running towards urbanisation. As most of us are known abt the technology and the weather condition favouring the granins, fruits, vegitable.

    SIR,

    I AM VERY MUCH INTERESTED IN OLIVE CULTIVATION BUT, AFTER REQUESTING SO MANY CONCERNED PEOPLE, I COULD NOT GET ANY RESPONSE. I AM SURPRISED, WHY THIS CULTIVATION IS KEPT SO HIDDEN AND NO ONE IN THE WORLD CAN GIVE PROPER GUIDENCE TO PLANT THE SAME.

    I HAVE APP 50 ACRES OF LANE IN NIMAR AREA OF MADHYA PRADESH (INDIA)WITH FULL IRRIGATION FACILITY FROM RIVER NARMADA.

    THE TEMPRETURE IS EQUIVALENT TO RAJASTHAN (RACHES UP TO 47 DEGREE.

    I SOME ONE CAN HELP ME TO OBTAIN THE PLANTES AND PROVIDE ME THE PROPER GUIDENCE, THEN I WILL BE HIGHLY OBLIGED AND CAN PAY FEES FOR THE SAME.

    WITH REGARDS
