Crop Potection Ensuring with Advanced Detection Technique

A major Israeli agricultural conglomerate announced that it was using advanced detection techniques originally developed by the FBI and CIA to ensure its crop of bell peppers is free of dangerous pesticides, chemicals or bacteria.

Ein Yahav, which oversees 120 cooperative farms responsible annually for 34,000 tons of produce for the domestic and export markets, said the new technology can identify minute amounts of more than 300 types of hazardous substances, even if they are blended together, part of what the company said is a quest to provide “the maximum security technology allows” to the consumer.

The company uses a “minimal amount” of pesticides on its products and tests the soil, air and water on the farms it oversees for hazards.
