Study horticulture at Mendel University in Brno
Mendel University in Brno has recently achieved a great feat by developing and patenting a unique spray that protects plants against harmful bacteria. While similar products exist on the market, they’re much less effective than Mendel’s newest invention. The research lasted for ten years and the spray is at least 10 000 better than those currently available for purchase. Does it inspire you? Are you interested in chemistry, gardening and cultivation? Mendel University invites foreign students to study horticulture!
