The farm practice was conducted at the Institute of Plant Breeding from November 18, 2008 to February 26, 2009. The objective of the farm practice aimed to help the student gain experience and practical skills in crop production in plant propagation and nursery management was practiced in two main departments of the Institute of Plant Breeding, namely: The National Seed Foundation and The Plant Cell and Tissue Culture Laboratory. At the National Seed Foundation, the student performed grafting, marcotting, marching, seed sowing, and other propagation techniques in fruit crops. At the Plant Cell and Tissue Culture Laboratory, he learned the procedures involved in the micro-propagation of banana and orchids.
He was also trained to do other practices necessary to make the crops better and more productive such as weeding, application of fertilizers, application of pesticides, watering, transplanting and others. As a whole, the student was able to acquire practical knowledge and further developed his skills in the different propagation techniques of different crops. He also learned the importance of such activities like crop improvement, seed multiplication and crop biotechnology through tissue culture as done in the institute.
