Growing Avocados In Israel: What Can We Learn From The Israeli Experience?
International Guest Lecturer Miriam Silberstein, a researcher and extension advisor in Israel, is a pioneer in the avocado industry. She has conducted research with reclaimed water and studied the impact of saline water (200+ ppm chloride) on avocados. Silberstein has worked closely with Dr. Ben Ya'acov on rootstock selection for salt tolerance and other conditions affecting avocado tree growth.
