FAO European Commission on Agriculture visited SZIU Faculty of Horticultural Science

The Ministry of Agriculture received the two-yearly meeting of FAO European Commision on Agriculture for the third time on 1-2 October 2019 in which 54 representatives of European and Central Asian countries participated. The main significance of the actual meeting of the European Commision on Agriculture was to make arrangements for the International Year of Plant Health in 2020.

As one of the programmes of the two-day meeting with professional lectures, the Ministry of Agriculture and the FAO organised a field visit to show Hungarian results, good practices and scientific observations about plant health and entomology.  SZIU Faculty of Horticultural Science recieved the participants of the field trip so the delegation could visit the Department of Entomology and the Department of Plant Pathology. A visit to Buda Arboretum and a wine tasting completed the half-day programme.
