Plant Sciences
The Institute of Plant Sciences is Israel's largest research organization in the broad fields of plant biology, agro-technology, and agro-environmental issues.
Animal Science
The main goals of the institute are to conduct basic and practical research to support animal breeders and farmers and to benefit the consumers of their products. Exploitation of the knowledge yielded by this research will enhance production efficiency and reduce losses and product costs, thereby increasing outputs of meat, eggs and milk, reducing environmental pollution and maintaining the quality of the environment.
Plant Protection
Research in the Institute deals with all aspects of plant disease including detection, control, mechanisms and resistance caused by insects, fungi, bacteria, viruses, phytoplasma, weeds and nematodes. Precision application of chemicals and environment-friendly alternative methods of pest control are among important research aspects.
Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences
The Institute of Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences is engaged in basic and applied research concerning the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. It is dedicated to improving agricultural productivity without compromising environmental quality, and to conserving soil and water, two of Israel's most limited natural resources.
Postharvest and Food Sciences
The Institute for Technology and Storage of Agricultural Products comprises two departments – Postharvest Science of Fresh Produce; and Food Science – staffed by 72 employees of whom 22 are PhD-level researchers and the rest are engineers, technicians, and administrative and support staff. The Institute units are based at the Volcani Center campus at Bet Dagan.
Agricultural Engineering
The general objective of the Institute of Agricultural Engineering (IAE) is to develop and introduce new concepts, methods and systems that will advance Israeli agriculture and assist Israeli farmers.
