From mobility to Nepal and the Czech Republic

This year, the Faculty of Agriculture and Technology of the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice implemented a series of mobility of academic staff and doctoral students together with the partner Agriculture and Forestry University in Nepal. The implementation of mobilities and the reception of guests was supported under KA107 International credit mobility of the Erasmus+ program (2020-1-CZ01-KA107-077761).

In March of this year, two academic staff went to Nepal intending to deliver lectures at a partner university, which were thematically focused on issues of agriculture in the EU, organic farming, animal production, and modern agriculture trends (the so-called Agriculture 4.0). In the same period, two Department of Agroecosystems doctoral students completed two-month internships in Nepal, taking and processing soil samples on-site and studying agrotechnical practices in sustainable agriculture.

In June, implementing the second part of the mobilities started when Professor Dhakal and two doctoral students came to our faculty for a one-week lecture stay and a two-month internship. A series of lectures included information about agriculture in Nepal and exciting news about the use of neglected crops and traditional cultivation practices in crop production. Nepalese doctoral students are doing a professional internship at the Department of Agroecosystems, where they learn laboratory procedures for analyzing soil organic matter, cereal quality, and biological protection of legumes. Their program also includes participation in a field day, a summer school of food production, or graduation ceremonies of graduates of our faculty.
