Third-year geographer students of the Eszterházy Károly University participated in a fieldtrip in the village of Kömlő on 25 March 2016. The programme was organized by Csaba Patkós PhD, director of Institute and Sándor Tóth MSc geographer. In the first half of the day students became familiar with the key economic branch of the village, namely with agriculture. In the farm of István Molnár a really up-to-date and successful enterprise could be seen. Among many machines and appliances the geographers were interested in mainly the GPS-controlled tractor.

With the visit of the farm of Tibor Balázs our students could get an insight into the life of a small-scale, start-up agro-enterprise. Our junior regional development specialists were interested in to the experiences of our young host who was graduated just some years ago as an agronomist.
Péter Besenyi has a family farm specialized for animal husbandry. Beyond a good occasion of a petting zoo this place was useful to get information about hardships of the implementation of applications aiming to support young farmers.
Tamás Turó, the Mayor of Kömlő invited us for lunch in the municipality restaurant where participants could taste local food partly prepared from endemic stock.
The village makes many efforts to rise from the recent lagging-behind position. The greenhouse and horticulture cultivated by local communal workers are some arguments of it.
Mr. Turó reported on the resent state, possibilities and plans of the village. He told us that the main employer is the municipality itself that's why they try to use the labour-force of local people for productive projects.
At the end of the professional programme participants witnessed a historical moment as the mayor welcomed two of our Stipedium scholarship holder international students Lenin Bastidas from Ecuador and Ahmed Adwan from Palestine. Mr. Turó said that Kömlő was never visited by any guests from these countries.
