  • Description

    ISRAELI AGRONOMISTS TURNED THEIR SKILLS TO COOKING A GOOD, TRADITIONAL ARAB LOAF OF BREAD THIS WEEK. THE FLAT, CIRCULAR LOAVES OF BREAD -- CALLED "PITA" BY THE ARABS -- HAD TO BE GOOD ENOUGH TO CONVINCE ARAB FARMERS TO ADOPT NEW AGRICULTURAL METHODS.

    "PITA" FORMS PART OF THE STAPLE DIET OF ARABS LIVING IN THE JENIN AREA, ON JORDAN'S WEST BANK. IN THIS AREA, THE ISRAELIS HAVE ESTABLISHED AGRICULTURAL STATIONS TO EXHIBIT NEW EQUIPMENT, AND INSTALLED EXPERTS TO ADVISE ON THE USE OF SEEDS, FERTILIZERS AND IMPROVED AGRICULTURAL TECHNIQUES.

    THE EXPERTS TOOK TO COOKING IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE NEW METHODS. "PITA" MADE FROM NEWLY PRODUCED WHEAT SEED WAS SERVED UP TO ARAB FARMERS FOR THEIR APPROVAL AT AN EXHIBIT IN A JENIN CINEMA.

    IN THE PAST, ONLY ONE OR TWO VARIETIES OF WHEAT SEED HAVE BEEN GROWN IN THE AREA. THIS SEASON 12 VARIETIES WERE INTRODUCED -- SOME OF THEM CLAIMED TO MORE THAN TRIPLE CROP YIELD.
