60 abaca farmers finish 20 sessions on CFS

Koronadal City (28 November) -- Residents from the different barangays of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato had completed the seminar on Conservation Field School (CFS) on abaca, with emphasis on enhancing the capacity of stakeholders on conservation and production of the indigenous product - abaca.

Provincial Agriculture Officer Rey Legaste, who conceptualized the idea of conservation, said that areas in South Cotabato and even elsewhere planted with this indigenous plant is waning but the demand for our T'nalak products are increasing.

The salient feature of the training is based on the project research conducted by scientists from the University of the Philippines at Los Baņos (UPLB), funded by SEARCA and supported by FIDA in collaboration with the Provincial Government of South Cotabato and MLGU-Lake Sebu.

The culmination activity of the seminar was highlighted with a field tour of the abaca plantation area in Barangay Klubi where recipients were privileged to gain knowledge, skills and be aware of the recommended technology to protect and preserve their abaca areas as the potential source of raw materials for quality T'nalak products (BEA/PIA 12/aca) [top]
