Water purfication for open-field irrigation
Shabi Agrifarm
Israel, Arabah desert
Key challenges

The Shabi Agrifarm company specializes in growing bell peppers in the Arabah desert, located a few kilometers south of the Dead Sea, where there is sunshine throughout the year.

The only water source is brackish borehole water (3500 µs/cm) from an aquifer situated 500 meters below the desert surface. This brackish water is unsuitable for irrigation because the salts it contains can clog the roots and leaf pores, hindering proper plant nutrition
