After lockdown, AGIII students were back to AREC to proceed with their hands-on spring and summer courses (June 1). Students eagerly started their courses. Their hands-on agricultural projects include the establishment of a permanent hydroponic unit for vegetable production, Origanum production by verticulture system, multiple vegetable productions and integrating aquaculture with vegetable production were launched (June 8).
Dean Mohtar recently visited the AREC farm (June 13) to meet with AGIII students to see their practical experiments, and to see their projects such as: vegetable production, hydroponic-growing, aquaculture-multiple cropping vegetables, verticulture or vertical farming.
Dean Mohtar visited AREC facilities (June 14) the following day. The Dean's visit was a benefit to support and encourage AREC administration, staff, and students in these difficult situations. The visit encourages the students that even during these difficult times, that there are hope and a team behind them that believes in the work they are doing.
