40 Negros Oriental farmers to undergo vermiculture training

by Rachelle Nessia

Dumaguete City (13 November) -- Nearly 40 Farmers Association Coordinators and the Federated Farmers' presidents in the province will undergo a training on vermiculture from November 18 to 19, 2008 at the Government Agricultural Development Center (GADCENT) in Dangula, Siaton.

The training aims to boost the province's push for organic farming through vermiculture which produces fertilizer using cultured worms.

At the end of the live-in training, the participants are expected to learn about vermiculture, its production and its effects for the improvement of the agriculture industry in the province, said Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO) Information Officer Nitz Bangay.

In a statement, Bangay said that it is important for the participating farmers to realize the value of vermiculture and adopt environment-friendly production practices.

She stressed that the said farmers are likewise expected to implement long-term vermiculture projects in their barangays.

Director Larry Nacionales of the Department of Agriculture in Region 6 stressed that soil fertility can best be improved using the organic farming technology, and farmers in the region are now benefiting from this type of farming strategy.

"Farmers in the region can reduce or minimize use of costly fertilizers on their farms, but could still increase crop yields and this is possible through the balanced fertilization strategy or tamang abono program which the DA is promoting to help farmers boost their productivity," Director Nacionales said.
