The main features in which farming methods and the environment in Israel differ from those in Western Australia, as they appeared to me, are:- the dominant sedimentary and limestone geology with its accompanying soil and moisture conditions population pressure which puts a premium on agricultural productivity and research the widespread use of sprinkler irrigation. These factors interact in various ways so that, although many problems are similar in the two countries (both have many pioneering problems remaining) the approaches to them vary considerably.
