The aim of the course is to raise the capacity of researchers and staff of the Agricultural Research Department on plant breeding, plant physiology, histological propagation of date palm blossoms, methods of detection of modified plants and study of variability between mother plants and newly developed plants.

HE Undersecretary of the Ministry of Municipality and Environment for Agriculture and Fisheries Affairs, Sheikh Dr. Faleh bin Nasser Al-Thani, said that under the wise leadership, the ministry is exerting all efforts to achieve food security, protect the environment of Qatar, preserve its natural resources and keep abreast of regional and global changes and developments in the fields of agricultural research and environmental sustainability.
