We, as Ordu University, aim to create and develop sustainable cooperations between academicians and producers with bilingual collaborations by transfering these kinds of relations to scientific potential agricultural fields and transforming knowledge into economic output and directing agricultural activities in the region into research and development and innovative works. In this respect, for the hazelnut which is the most important agricultural product in the region and Ordu province we make guidance to a variety of projects carried out in the framework of TÜBİTAK and supported by Natural Boron Research Institution.
