Practical training As for practical training, students are participated in making vermicompost and vermiwash, beekeeping, growing summer and rainy rice as well as practical production of some vegetable crops such as eggplant, chili etc.

 

Farmer Training As the farmer training, the department conducted the courses on plant protection tactics and red spider mites and their control. Capacity Building

 

Programs  For the teaching and laboratory staff, the department carried out the capacity building training programs on how to operate and maintain the pesticide residue measuring machine, from 16.2.2018 to 17.2.2018. The objective was to be able for the staff to use systematically HPLC machine for pesticide residue analysis.

 

Excursion The department planned a pest collection trip for the Agricultural Entomology specialized fourth year students to explore the spider mite species infested on natural and 

cultivated land in eight townships of Nay Pyi Taw Council. Outcomes from the excursion  Observing the infestation level and distribution pattern of spider mites species on natural and cultivating crops  Practicing the team spirits and organizing power.

 

Oversea Aids and Cooperation Collaboration with Japan International Cooperation Agency, Department of Entomology and Zoology conducted a series of experiments concerned with mango fruit fly, varietal screening of rice stem borers resistance and insect pests forecasting, and curriculum development program. With the cooperation of Indian Experts, the department involved the agricultural extension activities, continually. The department is conducting the following researches with the support of JICA project. 1. Influences of Handling Practices and Postharvest Losses by Fruit Fly on Mango 2. Screening for Resistance to Yellow Rice Stem Borer in Selected Rice Varieties 3. Establishment of major insect-pest warning model through defining distribution map for insect pests and natural enemies on rice and pulses.
