In order to demonstrate practical concepts of sustainable agriculture to the students of ASAB, an educational trip to Ummah Welfare Grape Farms Attock was organised on 6th January, 2017. The visitors included students studying the elective course Sustainable Agriculture as part of their undergraduate degrees. The students were accompanied by ASAB faculty members Dr. Qasim Hayat, Dr Faiza Funir and Mr. Salik Hasan Aslam (course instructor). The visit was facilitated by the district agriculture department; that have provided technical assistance to establish the farm. The most interesting aspect of the field trip was that the students got an opportunity to interact with some of the progressive farmers in the region. These interactions greatly helped students to understand the current state of agriculture in the area and appreciate the challenges faced by farmers in adopting sustainable practices. The tour provided the students an excellent learning experience outside the usual study environment of classrooms. This experience enabled them to witness practical application of methods used in agriculture to ensure sustainability and also served to highlight the opportunities that agriculture sector in Pakistan has to offer.
