Kabankalan City holds training on sustainable corn farming

Negros Occidental (1 June) -- A capability enhancement training on the Development of Sustainable Corn Based Farming System was held recently in Kabankalan City.

Around 20 farmers from different barangays in the city participated in the training held at the Mount Balo Hall, Negros State College of Agriculture, NSCA Compound in Brgy. Camingawan, Kabankalan.

City Agricultural Technologist Samuel Tellano said the training includes three phases.

The first phase was the training of participants, second phase was application of the technology learned by the participants and phase 3 was training of other farmers by previously trained farmers.

The objective of this training is for the farmers to achieve higher productivity and to enhance their leadership and capabilities, said Tellano.

Neighboring towns of Isabela and Ilog also sent their technicians to the training.

At the culmination of the training, the provincial government turned over a farm tractor to the NSCA.

Meanwhile, as a form of assistance to the farmers, the city has, so far, disposed already 535 bags of corn to 100 farmers at a discounted price of P1,400/per bag. The actual cost per bag is P2,800, said Tellano.

The training was a collaborative effort of the city government of Kabankalan, Negros State College of Agriculture, Dept. of Agriculture, Region VI; Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, WESVARDEC and the Agricultural Training Institute. (Kabankalan/PIA/EAD) [top]
