One single governmental farm exists since the time of the British Mandate and is used for experiments of cultivar-rootstock combinations, especially in the fields of citrus and sub-tropical plants. These are long term experiments that are beyond the abilities of the agricultural farms.
Most of the cultivars have been planted in the central region where the climate is moderate. This type of climate allows the growing of good quality cultivars more so than in the south, and indeed, in the past few years there has been a planting wave of orchards, and mainly high profitability crops. The field is enjoying a wave of development and growth and the farm, which is run by the district, receives assistance for the research and development of the field.
