In Jordan the sixth ToT (trainer to trainer) training of the HAED-Jo project was held in August this year. Topics of this training were Greenhouse Climate and Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This training was well timed as participants have just had their first experiences with the new greenhouses. The courses and workshops were enthusiastically received by the participants. However, it was revealed that greenhouse climate control is not that simple. Modern plant empowerment, i.e. using plant balances on energy, assimilates and water, is a logical framework but it requires mental flexibility to understand and adapt these parameters of greenhouse growing.
In the coming years we hope to continue the work that we started. For information on the HAED-project click here.
