Date: 1 – 5 February 2016

 

Venue: Agricultural Technology Research Institute, Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna Lampang (RMUTL), Thailand

 

Organized by:
National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC)

National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA)

Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST)

 

In Collaboration with:
Agricultural Research Organization, Israel

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel

Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna Lampang (RMUTL), Thailand

 

Rational Background:

Water and Plant nutrient are the most essential factors for optimal yield and quality of agricultural produces. However, daily demand of water and nutrients required by each specific crop at each specific growth stage can be varied substantially. In order to utilize the resources and expect for the result to the fullest, it is widely accepted that fertigation (fertilization + irrigation = the application of plant nutrients through the irrigation system) is “a must” method.


Fertigation is not only the best method to correctly and specifically apply fertilizers to irrigated crops, but also the key to various benefits e.g. maximizing crop and soil productivity, maximizing fertilizer efficiency, and better usage of marginal land (sandy, rocky, shallow or salt affected soils). Although fertigation has been practiced more and more extensively in commercial agricultural farms, the technique need to be learned and developed regularly to achieve maximum efficiency better reliability and suitability to each crop and plantation.

 

The National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna Lampang (RMUTL) have realized the importance of fertigation technique and the needs of updated knowledge for personnel in educational, research and private sectors. The parties have agreed to organize the "Drip Fertigation Training" by inviting two distinct Israeli research scientists.

 

Aims:

  • To enable the Thai participants in learning the fundamental knowledge, methodologies, research experience, and best practice in progressive irrigation & fertigation technology and application by Israeli scientists.
  • To practice on the given exercises both in the class and field regarding drip irrigation system, sensors assembly, fertigation calculation, measurement and operation.

 

Speakers

· From Israel

· Dr. Naftali Lazarovitch, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

· Dr. Uri Yermiyahu, Agricultural Research Organization, Gilat Research Center

  • From Agricultural Technology Research Institute (ATRI), Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna Lampang (RMUTL), Thailand

· Assoc Prof. Dr. Chiti Sritontip

· Asst Prof. Dr. Sanchai Panthachod

· Asst Prof. Dr. Sawit Meechoui

· Dr. Wirat Ampun

 

Language:

The whole course will be given in English without translation. However, a brief summary in Thai will be given in the last session of each day.

 

Number and Targeted Participants:
Expected participants are 60 persons who are from the following organizations:

a) Seed Company

b) Irrigation supply company

c) Fertilizer company

d) Private farms

e) Public organization

f) University

g) Research institutes

h) Department of Agriculture/Department of Agricultural Extension, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives

Background of targeted participants:

  • Most of participants should be familiar with irrigation system. Certain experience/ knowledge in Fertigation would be an advantage in sharing with other participants in the course
  • Good command of English (all the program will run in English without translation)

 

Registration fees:

These fees are inclusive of 7% VAT, lunch and refreshment each day, workshop material and handout. However, all of the participants must be responsible for their own accommodation and transportation.

  • General THB 6,500
  • Student THB 5,500
