“We are always looking to implement new technologies that can benefit growers and promote sustainable farming practices, and we hope that the project’s success can be duplicated to improve organic weed management while producing environmental and conservation benefits.” Thanks, David, a huge helping hand to agriculture.

Fantastic ideas for conservation and growth. I try to imagine what Las Vegas would look like if Israel was in charge. No more water fountains wasting precious resources. There were Israelis around here more than a decade ago teaching the state how to secure it's reservoirs. Job well done

The Israelis aren't constrained by our self-centered OLIGARCHS!

Rice, thank God, is still a very affordable staple for low income people. One can still buy a twenty pound bag for less than $10. It also has a long shelf-life when stored in large glass jars. Its shelf-life is something like two years. I have around seven large Mt. Olive pickles jars full of long grain rice. Tightly sealed the rice stays fresh for a couple of years.

One never knows when a hardship could come upon them. During the Great Recession, which I feel is still around, I lived on rice and other staples after losing 1/3 of my annual income. I was able to pay all my bills and keep my credit score high while crawling out of a financial abyss!!!
