Atok

Options demonstrated in the municipality of Atok

Water Storage for Vegetable Production



The productivity and profitability of farming depends largely on the availability of supplemental water for irrigating the crops. A quicker way of setting up a water storage system is through prefabricated plastic tanks that are readily available and not difficult to set-up.

Integrating Citrus in Vegetable Farms



Integrating citrus in vegetable farms is aimed at increasing biological diversity and at the same time enhancing the protective and productive values of watershed in an intensive vegetable-based production system in the high elevation agro-ecological zone.

Crop Rotation: Potato after Cabbage/carrot



This cabbage/carrot-potato rotation cropping scheme is aimed at interrupting the cycle of plant pathogens and insect pests in an intensive vegetable-based production system in the high elevation agro-ecological zone.

Planting a resistant variety of carrot



Carrot is planted during wet season but control of disease affecting carrots is a major problem limiting the farm productivity. Hence, the use of variety which is resistant to the major diseases during wet season is considered as an option to stabilize the carrot production. KS Kuroda is one variety that is resistant to heavy downpour and associated diseases with rain.

Planting a resistant variety of cabbage



In the regular cropping pattern, cabbage is planted during the wet season. However, in this season disease of cabbage is a major problem limiting the farm productivity. Hence, the use of variety which is resistant to the major diseases during wet season is considered as an option to stabilize the cabbage production. Lucky Ball is one resistant variety.
