Israel Agriculture Official Meets Food Leaders Here

By HEIDI PRESS

On a one-week visit to the
U.S. last week on behalf of
Israel Bonds, Yahalomah
Shehory, deputy director
general of Israel's Ministry
of Agriculture, was in De-
troit to meet with food in-
dustry leadership.
During her' one-day visit
to Detroit, Ms. Shehory
talked about new develop-
ments in the agricultural
scene in Israel.
She described a form of
genetic engineering taking
place in plant nurseries in
Israel. The process involves
creating new plants from
tissue culture of existing
strong plants. On a com-
mercial scale, she said that
countries throughout the
world send a "mother" plant
to Israel, from which seedl-
ings are created from tissue
culture. The seedlings are
sent back in bottles to the
source.
A graduate of Hebrew
University and Michigan
State University, Ms.
Shehory said that she is
an exception in the ag-
ricultural ministry. "I am
a woman and I don't have
an agricultural back-
ground," she said.

negotiations on behalf of the
ministry, including an
agreement with the Euro-
pean Economic Commu-
nity.
Ms. Shehory is chairman
of the producing and mar-
keting boards for vegeta-
bles, flowers, beef, honey
and more and is a member of
the board of the port
authority, egg and poultry
board, citrus marketing
board, citrus products board
and Agrexco, the agricul-
tural export commission.
She said that research
and development are "gain-
ing in importance" -and U.S.
business is playing a major
role in research and de-
velopment investment.
"Israel is making
agreements on a bilateral
and multilateral basis.
Israel is ready for
partnerships of this
sort," she said.
Asked about the role of
computers in agriculture,
Ms. Shehory said they were
in use extensively in pack-
ing houses, in milk pro-
duction and in chicken
coops, which are fully au-
tomated.
On the kibutzim, com-
puters are used for long-
term planning of farms. She
remarked, "A manager
doesn't consider himself a
manager unless his has a
computer."
She added that "elec-
tronics is the biggest indus-
try in Israel," primarily in
the export of hardware
(equipment) and software
(programs).
Questioned about the
effect the current fight-
ing has on the industry,
she said the northern
border areas were suffer-
ing.
"All of the fruit industry
is in the north. (We) can't go
picking in the orchards."
In summer, many Ameri-
cans, particularly students,
come to Israel to
work on the kibutzim. She
said that the Americans
were "definitely a help,"
since extra hands are al-
ways needed.
From Detroit, where she
also met a delegation of Is-
rael Bond women, Ms. .
Shehory was scheduled to
go to Cleveland. While in
the U.S. she was scheduled
to meet with farmers, food
store and food industry
leadership.
