The Fiji National University has invested $5 million in partnership with the Grace Road Food Company for the Agriculture Training Institute in Wainidova Road, Navua.

FNU has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Korean owned GRFC to promote co-operation in the fields of agriculture and Technical and Vocational Education and Training.

GRFC director Daniel Kim said the students needed an actual farm to learn their farming skills on both the practical and theory on nearly 2800 acres land called Uni Farm.

The Agricultural Training Institution has a conference hall, four lecture halls, a library, dormitories and a research centre for the students.

The MOU will allow students to research, share facilities and ideas on farming, harvests, and different components of farming.

“To operate this institute we need people support, we need interest, we need Government involvement, we need university involvement and we need community farmer’s involvement to operate this institute,” Mr Kim said.
