The attendants took a tour of the farm inside the center and reaped various crops such as white radishes, cabbages, spring onions, etc. They were visibly elated and enormous grins spread across their faces.
According to Dr. Shim Hong-Sik, Director of the KOPIA Uganda Center, the Center has been test-cultivating Korean and Ugandan local vegetables. The Center achieved fruitful results for the past four years in preventing damage to the crops by pests and diseases, thus increasing production.
Mentioning that he is very proud of KOPIA’s activities in research and spreading valuable modern agricultural technologies that will be of help to Ugandans, Ambassador Kim You-Churl in his speech emphasized the plan to resolve Uganda’s food shortage problem through large-scale rice farming.
We hope that Uganda will grow as food warehouse of Africa through KOPIA’s technology. We also send our full support to Dr. Shim, our proud Korean specialist.
