The Union was founded as a non-profit organization by a group of volunteers and agronomists. The priorities of the Union at the beginning focused on struggling with the Israeli Occupation’s procedures that marginalized agriculture and destroyed the infrastructure of Palestinian agriculture. The Union in its early days depended on volunteers completely, in addition to forming agricultural committees in the WB and GS, to set the priorities of farmers and help the Union in implementing its programs and community activities.
