Published by admin on

Nagcarlan, Laguna–Following the success of the six previous trainings in Bulacan, Leyte, and Nagcarlan, twenty-two more farmers became SEP partners in the organic agriculture advocacy. The SEP team organized its seventh training on Organic-based Farm Practices, Social Enterprise Development, and Farmer-Clustering on September 3 to 4, 2016 at Abo-Bukal Elementary School, Nagcarlan, Laguna.

The training program covered topics on organic rice and vegetable production, organic fertilizer and bio-pesticide production and application, financial literacy and personal development, supply chain and farmer-clustering, and agro-processing. Resource persons are from the University of the Philippines Los Baños, EnPraxis, Good Food Community, and LifeBank.

Post-training assessments revealed that all the farmers expressed willingness to adopt organic-based practices, produce organic foliar and fertilizer, and engage in agro-processing. Five farmer-partners particularly volunteered to establish a demo farm on organic-based practices in their area.

Following the two-day training are the cluster formation and mentoring where the farmer-partners’ adoption of technologies and compliance with the production plan and schedule shall be monitored. They will then be assisted in linking with support services providers and market institutions.
