Broaden our horizons and share experiences
M.A.Awanka Nimal

The training workshop was held in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, China from 22nd August to 10th September 2016. I successfully completed the study in international training workshop on seed potatoes production and integrated disease control technology there.

There was a combination of lectures, case studies and field trips. In addition, we had study tours as well.

The workshop aimed to build up capacities through lectures and field visits within limited time and was a good platform for the participants and personally myself to broader horizon through sharing our experience among each other.


Considering my duties in the Department of Agriculture, this workshop was a great opportunity for me to expand my knowledge and experience in the area of seed potato production and integrated disease control technology I gained through this workshop in China. We are currently successfully applying to increase seed potato production in Sri Lanka. Here I specially used hydroponic and aeroponic systems and both are showing very good results.

The workshop summarized the current knowledge and assessed the efficient use of new technology in seed potato production and integrated disease control technology.  Therefore, to upgrade quality potato seed tuber production in Sri Lanka and exposure to advanced technology practiced in China through this workshop are major benefits.


Finally I would like to express my greatest gratitude to my lecturers, officials of the organization and the people and the government of People’s Republic of China for giving me this golden opportunity.
