Many young people want to return to the country and take up farming but are afraid they don't have the skills. Pingtung County Government is holding an agricultural training course for the third time and wants to recruit 180 students. The courses include entry, basic and college-level courses. Anyone who is over 18 years of age can apply.

For the third time, Pingtung County Government is holding an agricultural university and recruiting students. It invited students from last year's courses to give briefings so that prospective students can understand this dedicated farmers' training program and its education on agricultural knowledge and techniques.

==CHEN SHIH-PEI Student==
We've covered topics such as basic theories, food processing, marketing and biological pest control.

==LIAO CHIN-YING Student==
I've learned quite a lot about food processing. The knowhow helps us farmers make more money.

To encourage young would-be farmers the county government awards micro-loans for start-up agricultural industry, so that youth without funds can be bold in setting up a business and concentrate on farming.

==CHEN SHIH-PEI Student==
Some sort of micro-loan should be set up. A lot of us young people would love to stay in the countryside, but we need financing. Having access to money would be of termendous help.

==PAN MEN-AN Pingtung Magistrate==
We provide both agricultural know-hows and financing so that young farmers can prosper and thrive.

Since its inception, the agricultural courses run by Pingtung County Government have had over 1,000 people register, showing that there is a high degree of interest in farming. They hope to build on the success of the two previous courses and attract more young blood to the farming industry.
