Israeli Mission Arrives in Peru to Study Irrigation Possibilities

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

An Israeli mission has arrived in Peru to study the possibilities of exploring the waters in the subsoil of the Department of Lambayeque to make use of some 1,500 hectares in that part of Peru. This would put under irrigation an area of great agricultural potential which is now unproductive land.

The mission will make exact studies in geology and hydrology, as well as to the soil of the region to be irrigated, and climatic conditions. Members of the mission will prepare a report on the cost of the irrigation project, adjust present programs and recommend a better use of present resources.
