Tripura's agriculture will soon be able to expand with the help of Israeli technologies. The first stage of the Indo-Israeli Agricultural Cooperation Project began in 2008, and since then, the Israeli government has loaned its technologies to improve agricultural productivity in Tripura. The goal is to use cutting-edge technologies to boost the state's vegetable yield and quality. According to the most recent report, the government plans to establish a horticulture research centre in Tripura in conjunction with Israel.

Yair Eshel, the Israeli embassy's agriculture officer in New Delhi, recently visited Tripura for three days. His visit is intended to examine how Israeli technology is used in agriculture in the state and to develop new ideas to enhance irrigation and fertilisation methods utilising the most up-to-date technology.

On the second day of his tour, Eshel visited the Horticulture and Fruit Research Center in Agartala's Nagichhara, which is operated by the Department of Horticulture and Soil Conservation of the Department of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare. The facility was also visited by Dr. Phani Bhushan Jamatia, Director of the Department of Horticulture and Soil Conservation, Dr Rahib Ghosh, Deputy Director, and Dr Deepak Baidya, Deputy Director. He looked at the fruit research center's vegetable plots, various types of fruit plots, and the center's operations for a couple of hours, inquiring about fertiliser application, irrigation and orchard systems, and crop upkeep.

According to a report in East Mojo, Eshel was pleased with the way fruits and vegetables  were grown in Tripura, but he maintained that the state lacked the newest technology for greater outcomes. "Israel will give technological help to the state of Tripura in order to promote agriculture. In addition, innovative ways of raising vegetables and other crops will be taught," he was reported by East Mojo as adding.
