EEE faculty visits MARDI in Malaysia
EEE faculty member Prof S. Khan recently visited MARDI (Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute), located in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. He met deputy director Mahiuddin Yazid, and followed up on collaboration on automating watering, artificial lighting, and applying fertilizer for plants. It is expected that this will reduce dependence on human intervention and decision-making in agriculture. Methods developed at the EEE department of IUB may be tested at MARDI for growing flowers such as Chrysanthemum.
