The training included theoretical and field trainings based on demonstration plots, visits to laboratories, seed farms and greenhouses.
The participants emphasized that each of them gained unique and useful experience, which will be passed on to farmers and young consultants. And also expressed a desire to participate in a similar project again and their gratittude to UN FAO and Agrolead for realizations of this project.
