Water Ways Technologies Inc. has announced an expansion of their strawberry irrigation project in Ethiopia.

Previously announced in March, the project has expanded from $330,000 CAD to a value of approximately $470,000 CAD.

The strawberry irrigation project covers 20 hectares of greenhouses, using Israeli drip irrigation technology.

“We continue to see strong orders coming from Ethiopia. This proves that our strategy of focusing on higher value crops such as strawberries, blueberries and cannabis is starting to gain acceptance,” says Ohad Haber, chairman and CEO of Water Ways.

WaterWays signed the agreements with a wholly owned subsidiary of Midroc Ethiopia Investment Group, one of the largest investment companies operating in Ethiopia following successful implementation of projects previously signed with the group in 2020.

The expansion is said to use advanced Israeli technology of water delivery, from Lake Tana, the largest lake in Ethiopia and the source of the Blue Nile.

A provider of Israeli-based agriculture technologies, Water Ways has implemented irrigation projects in vineyards, cotton fields, apple and orange orchards, blueberries, medical cannabis,  and more, in over 15 countries, including Canada.
