From May 4th to 7th , in Essaida Manouba near Tunis, the third cycle of training for officers of the Tunisian Ministry of Agriculture organized by ICU and the Ministry in the framework of the ACCBAT project have been realized.

The training took place at the Centre Technique de Pomme de Terre et d’Artichaut (CTPTA) addressing the theme of fertigation with the aim to train engineers and officers of the central and peripheral structures of the Ministry of Agriculture on this innovative technique in irrigated agriculture.

Three participants from each governorate with 72 guests and some technicians of the project participated in the training.

A second training session was held in October on surface irrigation techniques, sprinkler irrigation and drainage.
