In addition, after the activity was completed, each student was given a pack of lemons from the garden as a gift from Senggani Gardens.

The implementation of activities like this can provide benefits to align the material that has been obtained on campus with those in the field. The material discussed in this course discusses agricultural production factors and institutions in agriculture which is in line with the holding of field lecture activities at Senggani Gardens.

“My hope is that students will get an idea about the practice in the field related to businesses engaged in agriculture, how to determine production inputs, calculate production costs, and determine selling prices. In addition, it inspires students that agriculture is not only synonymous with the older generation of farmers who are still traditional. Today’s farmers are technology literate to support production and marketing.” said Ratna Setyawati Gunawan as a teaching lecturer, in a written statement, Sunday (18/9/2022).
