As the global health crisis evolves, it’s vital that the world’s farmers have the means to continue essential production as normal. For us, this means continuing to maintain operations – both in our production facilities and in-field teams - to support farmers and their livelihoods. At the same time, we are committed to keeping you informed about Netafim's actions to safeguard our employees and to support our dealers.
Our priority at the moment is maintaining the health of our employees and their families, while at the same time keeping our farmers supported in every way possible. We are closely monitoring the situation and responding proactively with sustained action.

As always, our field teams are out there, lending the best possible support to our customers and dealers. And, we’ve got digital tools and platforms, to provide vital remote support, 24/7.
