The Department of Soil and Water Sciences promotes research on global processes in the soil-water-atmosphere continuum. Our unique Israeli environment — limited water resources, state of the art agriculture, diverse climate and soils — offers us exciting research opportunities.
The Department was established in the early 1950's to support the developing agriculture of the young state. Today, we perform cutting-edge research and develop advanced technologies in the following fields:
Soil fertility, soil chemistry, soil and water pollution and solution, soil-plant-atmosphere interactions,
water treatment and reuse for irrigation, precise irrigation, soil development and degradation,
human impact on the environment.
