Taking the physical measurements of a sheep to ascertain its nutritional status
The University Farm is an area next to the Research Institute for Bioresources and Biotechnology, consisting of fields for hands-on learning. In addition to 3 ha of agricultural land (1 ha rice paddies, 1 ha fields, 1 ha orchards), there are also nine hothouses and a barn for livestock practicums. Students experience the planting and harvesting of a range of plants from vegetables and ornamental plants/flowers to fruit, as well as caring for livestock. We hope that through being involved in actual production, students can learn about the latest agricultural technologies. Furthermore, these areas are open to students to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
