  • CABI
  • Companies (like Wienco)/farms
  • Shops where they sell pesticides

Approximately 2 days of training

Such practical training will be very useful to gain insight in the situation at farms/companies and in the knowledge level of the participants from the private sector and the government institutes. In addition the mission will have a concrete results for the stakeholders involved.

The set-up of the training will be as practice oriented as possible. For instance one day of company visits, together with representatives from PPRSD. During the visits, the NVWA will be able to give practical pointers to the companies. During a second day a practical training can be provided on integrated crop management, using some practical examples from the first day. If possible, the training will also be organised ‘on location’.
