`Plastic Fields' in Negev
Yield Produce for Export

BEERSHEBA (ZINS) —A total
of 136 agricultural communities
have been established to date in
the large Negev and Southern
areas. No less than 1,000,000
dunams of soil are now under cul-
tivation in the wastelands of the
Negev, aided by large irrigation
projects recently completed.
The fields in the Negev are
covered by white blankets of plas-
tic. These "plastic fields" stimu-
late a three-fold increase in agri-
cultural production. Large quanti-
ties of tomatoes and other vege-
tables being grown there are ex
ported during the winter to Eur-
ope at favorable prices. According
to figures, the Negev desert now
yields $1,000,000 in exports. Under
plans just completed, Negev ex-
ports of vegetables will soon reach
$10,000,000 a year.

Gas Output Increased

EILAT (ZINS) — The Israeli
NAFTA Co. which is engaged in
the discovery and exploration of
natural gas in the Negev is now
capable of increasing many-fold
its production, according to well-
informed economic sources.
In the opinion of American and
French experts, the wells of Zohar,
Kidud and Kanaim contain 1,750,-
000 tons of gas. The NAFTA Com-
pany is capable of furnishing the
Israeli market an annual produc-
tion of 180,000 tons of gas.
Because of the inadequate num-
ber of consumers, only 50 per cent
of the wells' production capacity
is utilized. A second company,
Magal, is now engaged with the
sale of gas to the consumers. A 1
per cent share in this company
yields an annual revenue of 7,000
pounds ($2,333).

ropean director for the Bonds
organization, assured the confer-
ence that the goal could be reach-
ed. He reported that, in France
alone $1,000,000 worth of Isreal
bonds had been sold in 1965.
Baron Edmond de Rothschild,
president of the European Con-
ference, Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, of
New York, executive vice-presi-
dent of Bonds for Israel, and
Joseph Burg, Israel's Minister for
Welfare, addressed the sessions.
The delegates represented sec-
