The third Academic Harvest Festival was a celebration not only of the this year´s harvest, but also of the 450th anniversary of the founding of the University of Olomouc and the 70th anniversary of the founding of the UP Faculty of Science. This important event was not missed by Martin Kubala, the Dean of the Faculty of Science, UP, nor by UP Rector Martin Procházka. Together, they also planted a red horse-chestnut tree in honor of these two anniversaries. A symbol of this year's festival was the first ever poppy seed harvest. There was a tasting of traditional delicacies, which were prepared from crops grown on experimental fields.

To the vice-rector prof. MUDr. Vít Procházka, Ph.D. a harvest wreath made of experimental barley and wheat was handed over, and part of the event was also a meeting of the academic public with business entities involved in the development of new, environmentally friendly, modern fertilizers.
