Order allow,deny Deny from all FIELD PRACTICAL TRAINING 2022/2023 - Department of Crop Science and Horticulture | Sokoine University of Agriculture





Field Practical Training (FPT) is an integral part of the degree courses offered by the College of Agriculture (CoA) at SUA. It provides opportunity for students to merge theory and practice by offering ‘real life’ situations for learning which cannot be simulated in lecture rooms, laboratories or departmental workshops at SUA. Among the major aims of FPT are;

  • To train skills e.g., in using equipment and carrying routine operations;
  • To provide knowledge e.g., of materials and processes;
  • To develop abilities e.g., of planning, organizing and communicating;
  • To foster attitudes e.g., of awareness on costs & efficiency implications and social & economic interactions
