Food for Thought

With a few kilos of cucumbers, zucchinis and eggplants, students of the agriculture department at the University of Balamand celebrated their first fruit production with IF-UIT director Dr. Elias Khalil.

The celebration came after months of hard work and countless working hours under the supervision of the department’s chairman Dr. Rodrigue El Balaa, leading to the establishment of a 1000 square meters greenhouse with various productions of cucumber, tomatoes, melon, watermelon, capsicum, strawberries and many other varieties.

An experimental site was also inaugurated in collaboration with Robinson Agri with 700 seedlings to test the most suitable varieties of cucumbers for the Akkar region. This project has become an integral part of the students’ training to introduce them to the sector’s cutting edge production systems.

The celebration is far from being the only surprise in the department’s sleeve, for you will soon be hearing about its latest innovations … and tasting them!​​​​​
