Every year, the agriculture and horticulture department of the technical school of Poperinge lay out hundreds of test fields at the trial farm "De Schipvaarthoeve". These are test with potatoes, grains, maize, hops and coarse vegetables. In this way, students are brought into contact with the practice in contemporary agriculture and horticulture.
In addition to the many tests, fruit is also grown in an integrated manner.
