-          Vegetable production

-          Field crop production

-          Fruit trees production

-          Field Practices in Plant Production & Protection

-          Seminars

II: Master degree:

-          Experimental design and analysis

-          Plant ecology

-          Measurement techniques for vegetation characteristics

-          Supervising many master students.

Interests

1-     Changes in natural plant attributes under different environmental conditions.

2-     Evaluating the efficiency of different water harvesting techniques on soil and water conservation and on natural plant characteristics.

3-     Utilizing the new molecular techniques in studying the genetic relatedness of natural plants.
