I also hope that the new agreement will give added impetus to our fostering of many youths who are capable of bringing about a real success to the prefectural agriculture."
Professor Mitsunaga also made the following statement; "Partnership with the Gifu Prefectural Agricultural Technology Center is of significant importance today when practical application and utilization of advanced knowledge and technologies are pursued than ever before by the members of agricultural communities."
With the new agreement coming into effect, Gifu University graduate students will take part in the prefecture's agricultural research programs and be given instructions from the researchers of the center. These active exchanges are expected to make a positive impact on students studying at the Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology.
