Sri Lanka  -

Tag has established an agriculture training centre and model farm in Batticaloa, eastern Sri Lanka, in the heart of an area battered by war and the 2004 Tsunami, where Israeli technologies and methodologies are being adapted to local conditions to increase income and generate jobs in the surrounding farming communities.

Tag has also stimulated two technology driven projects, using smartphones for economic and community development and using handheld devices for a cyber-ranger project to address human-animal conflict.

Agriculture Centre for Excellence

About 40 farmers have received training at the Tag/Sarvodaya Agriculture Training and Development Centre, where programs are led by local agronomist Professor V. Arulnandhy. As a result of the centre’s work, increasing numbers of farmers are adopting organic farming methods.
