Organization of the school day
The training takes place in an intensive mode. Classes run from early morning until evening. Participants in the programs spend most of the time in the field (in the training pavilion), performing practical tasks. Everyone gets the opportunity to acquire skills in working with equipment, learn how to prepare mixtures for processing plant protection products, etc.
The main goal of the classes is to master practical skills, obtaining theoretical knowledge is reduced to the required minimum.
Who can join the programs?
Engineers, agronomists and other professionals involved in the potato production process.
The programs are suitable both for people who just want to be engaged in potato growing, and for those who already have experience in growing, but need advanced training.
Optimal group size: 8-15 people. As the organizers note, with such a number of participants, the work of the group proceeds in the mode of "live communication": students ask questions, receive detailed answers, each person is given maximum attention.
To get the most out of the class, it is also important that the learners in the group have approximately the same level of training.
The teachers of the DEULA-Nienburg Center for Practical Training are the heads of existing agricultural enterprises, farmers with extensive experience. But in addition to a wealth of practical experience, they rely on the knowledge that is regularly obtained in advanced training courses organized by manufacturers of agricultural machinery and various specialized equipment.
