These facilities consist of an office, classroom and common room. These rooms are used exclusively for teaching/training for students. The office is shared jointly by FIAT and Rupex.
The Auckland property has three greenhouses of (GH I) 4000 Square Meter, (GH II) 2000 Square and (GH III ) 2600 Square Meter size and an open space of more than 5000 Square for outdoor growing. The two smaller greenhouses are fully heated: GH II with hot air circulation and GH III with hot water circulation. The GH I is used for growing vegetable seedlings for outdoor crops, GH II for native seedling production and GH III for growing summer and hothouse crop seedling.
In general on average we have been producing and supplying about 20-25 million seedlings per annum.
Although FIAT students have separate facilities to conduct their practicals, the commercial operations happening on site gives them orientation about the potentials and the industry links we have gives them easy access to finding jobs in the industry.
We are opn on Monday – Friday at 11am and 3pm, except on holidays.
