The Algerian National Higher School of Agronomy.
Algeria is rich in natural and animal wealth, but the agricultural sector is marginalized , and may not interest many young people because they do not know what might benefit them and how this sector is studied at the level of higher education.
The National High School of Agronomy in Algeria, located in Algiers specifically is the oldest higher education institution in Algeria, which was founded in 1905. Since 1962, the institute has provided training for around 5,000 agricultural engineers, some of whom have held senior positions at national (various ministries), and international levels (FAO, ICARDA, UNESCO, etc.). It should be noted that since this landmark INA ( Now ENASA) has trained more than 150 teachers and researchers for its own needs as well as for other national agricultural education establishments (Tizi Ouzou, Blida, Setif, etc.).
