ARO-VOL is the agricultural research organization of the state of Israel. It includes six research institutes: crop protection, plant sciences, agricultural engineering, post harvest, animal sciences and soil and water sciences. ARO-VOL’s main campus (Volcani Center) is located in Rishon Lezion at the center of Israel, and its two other campuses are located in the north (Newe Yaar center) and south (Gilat center) of Israel. While encompassing the full range of agricultural research activities, ARO-VOL focuses in particular on arid zone agriculture, enabling Israel – a country short of all the resources required for agriculture – to achieve among the highest levels of agricultural output in the world.
