Bachelor of Science in Agriculture student Juanito Enricoso left for Israel in September to complete his 11-month internship.
First among Argao campus students to have immersion in various agricultural industries in Israel, Enricoso bested other applicants during the evaluation, as mentioned by on-the-job-training (OJT) adviser Ruby Grace Guiar.
He recounted his initial decision of not pushing for the trip abroad, which eventually changed because of some insights from one of CTU Barili’s interns who just returned from Israel.
The opportunity has exposed him to the latest agro-based technologies and techniques used throughout the country, especially in Kefar Gil’adi Farm where he recalled learning how to use a picker machine in harvesting avocados.
He added that Agrostudies internship program includes not only field work but also classes once a week.
Free accommodation is afforded to Enricoso and other students from CTU campuses—Pinamungahan, Tuburan and Barili. Honey Powao and Paul Joshua Siñalan
