Soil Management with Minimum Tillage of Rootcrops

This is a CCA option of planting root crops like ginger, gabi, and others that would require minimum cultivation for low agro-ecological zones. This option is aimed at conserving soil and water and at the same time improving soil fertility.

Planting of Short Maturing Crops

Planting of short maturing crops as substitute for regular crops is an alternative crop production strategy to mitigate the negative impacts of abnormal weather conditions.

Potato Seed Production in Greenhouse

The introduction of greenhouse use for potato planting material production neutralizes the impact of weather hazards and, enables year-round cultivation.

Planting of Drought Resistant/sturdy Varieties

Crop diversification, with a mixture of crops that tolerate dry and wet conditions, is considered as one of the measures to stabilize crop production for food and cash.

Organic-based Vegetable Production in Greenhouse

The advantage of organic farming for food safety and maintaining environmental quality is well recognized. However, its application in the field is too risky because of insect pests and diseases. Thus, to avoid the crop failure under open fields this organic-based production in greenhouse will be demonstrated.

Planting of Early Maturing Corn Variety

For corn, planting the open pollinated variety IPB-13 an will assure of a seed stock after the next harvest season.

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.

Homestead Gardening

Planting pole sitao, ampalaya, eggplant, pechay for homestead gardening provides an alternative source of income. It also aims to improve the nutrition of the farm household.

Planting of Drought Resistant/sturdy Varieties

This option demonstrates the efficiency of mixed planting of pineapple with ginger, ubi, and gabi as crops resistant to heavy downpour and associated diseases.

Crop Rotation: Garlic/onion after Rice

This rotation cropping scheme is aimed at utilizing the remaining nutrients from the rice field at the same time interrupting the cycle of plant pathogens and insect pests in rice-based farming system in the low elevation agro-ecological zone.
