Irrigation and drainage, Ethiopia


The TerraVerde team provided agricultural design for implementing an irrigation and drainage system on 20,000 hectares of land. The scope of the project conducted by the Tahal Group covered the choice of crops, crop rotations, irrigation systems and irrigation scheduling and expected water usage patterns. The project also included the economics of irrigated agriculture —crop revenues, input costs and expected profits based on local market data. An economic analysis was done on the entire project.


The project benefits thousands of small-scale farmers in the Lake Tana area. Yield boosts following the introduction of irrigation, novel varieties and related technologies are expected to be four to five fold. Welfare and standards of living in the area are expected to be revolutionized following the implementation of the project.

TerraVerde Agriculture mourns the loss of a colleague and partner to agricultural advancement in the Negev, in Israel, and worldwide
יגאל פלאש ואשתו סינדי

Igal Flash and Cindy his wife were murdered by Hamas killers in their home in Kfar Aza, in the horrific attack that took place in the Western Negev on Saturday,
october 7.

Igal, was one of the professional pillars of field crops in Israel, especially in the cotton industry and in particularly in the Western Negev. They were brutally murdered in their home at Kfar Aza.

Igal continued a tradition of agriculture in this arid region, personally contributing to the continuous development from ancient rain-fed methods to the modern innovations of the 21st century. Building this robust agricultural environment not only boosted the settlement of a desert region with a thriving local economy, but also led to significant technological progress shared globally.

Further to the ceremony held in Israel we join the family in its mourning and in the fundraising efforts aimed to rebuild their lives, cover funeral expenses in Israel and the memorial in the US.

Be there for the Flash family:

In addition to the murder and injury of thousands of people, the agriculture in the area was also significantly damaged.
