As a hot and arid country, Israel has developed some of the most innovative technological solutions in the field of plant science and crop production. From advanced ways to grow plants where water is scarcely found to cutting edge developments to secure food quality and nutritional values, Israeli researchers are known around the globe and are assisting the farming industry in many countries.

At Tel-Aviv University, students can participate in a Master's program for M.Sc. in plant science that puts a strong emphasis on food safety and security.
