Experts's training in Dire Dawa, Ethiopia
Theoretical background by Fair Planet's agronomist
In preparation for the coming vegetable production season in East Ethiopia, Fair Planet’s technical team held a training seminar for Bureau of Agriculture experts in Tony research farm in Dire Dawa.
The “hands on” seminar touched all the important topics of pre-season preparations:
- Choosing the best plot
- Preparing the plot for planting vegetables
- Building beds and furrows for tomato, pepper, cabbage and onion
Twenty-six experts and developmental agents from the extension department of the Ministry of Agriculture in Dire Dawa attended the training, together with the extension head, Mr. Abdul Rahman.
The seminar started with a theoretical background from Fair Planet’s agronomists Faisal and Fentahun, covering all the aspects of pre-season preparations. Then, the seminar took to the field, where our local technicians, Mohammad and Ibrahim, led the practical demonstration with active participation and hands on learning of the experts, who actually prepared a plot for the coming season.
At the end of the practical training, there was a Q&A session in which questions of the participants were discussed.
The seminar was very successful, and the participants now can transfer the know-how to the farming community in the region.
