   Cooperation
The cooperation in training, research or extension service at the Faculty of Agriculture are usually being executed through national coordination, bilateral arrangements, and networks formed by a consortium of universities.The most common form of cooperation adopted by the Faculty is through formal and informal bilateral arrangements. Such collaborations are usually based upon mutual interests and benefits otherwise, unattainable.

Staff and student exchange programs or collaborative research are the examples of bilateral arrangements. Bilateral communication and requirements of donor agencies are the key factors determining the mode of the arrangement.
