Feeding the World: Sustainable Agriculture

As one of the leading Faculties of sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation – and the only one of its kind in Israel – the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment stands at the front lines of the “Green Revolution.”  The Faculty addresses the critical need for a combination of sustainable agriculture and environmental protection by bringing together outstanding teams of scientists to work on crucial environmental and agricultural problems.  Their interdisciplinary research is being enhanced by new state-of-the-art and renovated facilities, including laboratories, classrooms and climate-controlled greenhouses.
