- 50 agriculture students from Göttingen University visited the AGRAVIS test farm in St. Mauritz.
"I find visiting a test farm like this very exciting, seeing what the differences are when using fertiliser or spraying," said Lena Eggemann. The future farmers have already learned a great from books, but practice always looks different. The experts' experience impressed them.
The AGRAVIS- crop farming consultants Eiko Tjaden and Ralf Keunecke reported the results of their culitvation experiments and used the parcels to explain the differences. "We used slurry here, here no fertiliser at all, and mineral supplements there." explained Ralf Keunecke. The students listened attentively and assessed the differences between the parcels. "I am surprised at how time-consuming the cultivation tests are and I have respect of the work of the AGRAVIS employees here," said Stefan Campmann. In addition he learned how important the time of fertiliser use is. "That is the time effect," explained Eiko Tjaden. "Availabiltiy at the right time has a great impact." Following the tour, the participants also got a idea of the careers and recruitment possibilities at AGRAVIS.
