Date Palm Projects
One of the oldest cultivated trees, date palms have been growing in arid regions around the world for over than 5,000 years. In the Bible, the date palm is one of the Seven Species symbolizing Israel. Worldwide, date palms are considered a symbol of life and prosperity.
Dates are coveted for their sweet and unique taste and for their nutritional and medicinal values. Consumer awareness of their benefits has risen sharply, and global consumption nearly doubled in the past 20 years. Additional advantages for growers include their high profitabilty and the trees' ability to thrive on saline and brackish water while inter-cropped with multiple crops - from mango trees to pumpkins.
In Israel, over one million date palms grow in the Arava and Jordan Valley regions. Known for the fruits' high quality, cultivation is conducted using leading cutting-edge technologies and growing techniques. Eco Strategies' date palm experts implemented and managed projects in Morocco, Kenya, and India.
