This training course is organized by the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Farmers Service Center (ADFSC) targeting the staff and extension officers of the Agriculture Centers from Al Ain and Abu Dhabi regions of the Abu Dhabi emirate. The course structure includes lectures, open discussions, round-tables and hands-on training.

The program will cover irrigation management and water productivity in field and forage crops, diagnostics of irrigation-induced soil salinity and its management, and alternative crops and production systems for salt-affected areas and plant propagation methods. In the hands-on training at the ICBA research station, participants will learn more about water and soil properties that affect crop growth, and the field measurements that are simple and provide solutions to common problems.
