Israel Citrus Company completed the planting of ten thousand dunams as a part of the Savings Orchard campaign, initiated by Minister of Finance Levi Eshkol. During the campaign, hundreds of Israelis bought plots in orchards at the price of 600 Israeli pounds per dunam. The government loaned half the sum to the buyers, and they will start paying it back once their orchard bears fruit. In a ceremony near Ashkelon, Eshkol plants the last tree in the project.
