Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. On March 21, 29 trainees of 14 soums from Khovd Aimag and Bayan-Olgii Aimag started their 9-day training in cultivating vegetables in greenhouses. In three blocks of each three days of theory and practice, the participants will learn all necessary steps for operating a greenhouse from preparing the soil and seeds, fertilizing, crop rotation, pest control, care for the crops and harvesting. Also, the participants will get acquainted with different types of greenhouses, from make-shift greenhouse to sophisticated winter greenhouse, and with technology for irrigation.

Among the participants are members of cooperative and community groups, staff of protected area administration and river basin authority, who will share and disseminate the learned in their soums.

Instructed by experienced teachers of the Khugjil development polytechnical college of Khovd Aimag, the participants will grow cucumber, tomato and bell pepper in the greenhouses of the college and hopefully also in close future in their soums.

SPACES cooperates in this training with the KfW funded ‘Biodiversity and Adaptation to Climate Change’ Project (BACCP) by providing technical skills to those ten applicants for a greenhouse, who were selected by BACCP.

SPACES is supported by the German Government and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in cooperation with the Mongolian Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
