DEVELOPMENT OF THE JOJOBA IN ISRAEL
In 1989, Kibbutz Hatzerim decided to upgrade the process of growing Jojoba used both on the kibbutz and across Israel. A nursery was established for the mother plants; and consequently, Jojoba was established as an independent branch in the Negev and for the entire country. This process was crowned a success; and today, Israel produces the highest quality Jojoba in the world. This agricultural and agro-technological achievement positions "Jojoba Desert " at the forefront of international Jojoba growers, with an average harvest of 4,500 kg of seeds per hectare, using mechanized harvesting.
