After olives are pressed, olive growers share in the waste byproduct, the crushed pits, called jifit, which is used for fertilizer in the olive groves, as well as for fuel to cook bread or heat the home during the winter.

Khamees al-Hamad, 72, stands next to a pile of jifit at an olive press which he partially owns in the village of Salfit, south of Nablus.
