During my studies and work I had a chance to get acquainted with the many processes of plant protection. In many cases I also had a chance to use the products and evaluate their efficacy. In my early years at study-farm, we regularly organised meetings for farmers where we presented our research and demo-work. At the Faculty we developed a lot of international contacts and we regularly cooperated with foreign institutes and companies, conducting experimental work for them. I was involved in organising and actively participated (as a lecturer about different crop protection issues) in meetings, held under the umbrella of the Agricultural Ministry Regional Advisory Program. During this period I learned a lot about dealing with different people who are involved in agriculture.
