Teaching the next generation. Osamah Abu Al-Rub is one of only 20 strawberry farmers in the West Bank. The USAID Compete Project - which helps Palestinian farmers introduce a range of new crops with high export potential - helped him transition half of his strawberry crop from an open field into modern hanging systems in greenhouses. A new computerized system controls and monitors water and fertilizer levels for optimal output. As a result, he is able to produce ten times more strawberries than those grown the traditional way.
