LOW ELEVATION

Raising of Upgraded Goat



Rearing of goats has advantages over other livestock because of their shorter gestation periods, higher frequency of multiple births, high adaptability to different environments. Their small size and early maturity give goats that distinct economic advantage over other animals.

Raising of Upgraded Cattle



Cattle raising compliments the crop production business as a major source of organic fertilizer. Eventually, it becomes also an an alternative means of income for the farmer.

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.

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.

Community Fruit Tree Nursery



The establishment of a nursery in this project through a “community-based” approach is an attempt to capacitate the local people on the process of producing their own planting materials to enable them to be self reliant and independent from outside help.
