During his time in the project, he helped the tractor drivers with adjusting the machines to the local circumstances, harvesting and soil cultivation. Furthermore, he supported the team with the setup of the next cropping plan, the experimental setup of the next season as well as trainings for the correct use and filling of the sprayer and the drone. Eric explained how to properly use and fill the sprayer and that protective clothing is necessary when dealing with these fluids.

Other than the field activities, Eric was able to join the Farm during the 70-year celebration of China, where he got the chance to learn about the long lasting Chinese culture and see Chinese traditional dancing performances.
