Lambayong farmers set tour to Bukidnon

by Edgar B. dela Cruz

Koronadal City (20 October) -- Some employees, officers and members of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Sultan Kudarat Provincial Office, Local Government Unit of Lambayong, Municipal Agriculture and Fisheries Council (MAFC) and the Lambayong Seed Grain Producer Multi-Purpose Cooperative are scheduled to have them educational tour to Central Mindanao University (CMU), Tongan Tongan Organic Farmer Society and MAKAKABUS, Incorporated in Musuan and Bukidnon Province.

Sultan Kudarat DTI Provincial Officer Carlito Nuņez said that the "educational tour' aims to increase their knowledge and widen their exposure to the operation and systems on organic farming and production, modern farming techniques and technologies to boost farm production and income. They will also be observing modern and good farming practices which would be duplicated and practiced at their respective areas," added Nuņez.

Their experience also will be used in their practice of organic farming by using organic fertilizer and pesticide to lessen the burden of high price of inorganic fertilizer and pesticides and practice the use of environment and health friendly fertilizer and pesticide.

Due to the high prices of agricultural inputs a marginalized farmer could no longer produce high yield rice or corn if he will not used large amount of inorganic fertilize which fetch an amount of 800 to 900 pesos per sack compared to organic fertilizer which would only cost 300 to 400 pesos.
