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.

Rehabilitation of Irrigation Canal



Sustaining the productive capacity of the farm should be focused on harvesting and storing rain water to assure that the water requirements of crops are met. One way of demonstrating this is through repair and rehabilitation of irrigation canals. This will show how rice paddies can benefit from an increase and improvement in the flow of irrigation water.

Raising of Upgraded Swine



In the Cordilleras, the people have a strong preference for the meat in their meals. Across the region, swine is also an indispensable component in most of the rites and rituals. However, there is an increasing demand for beef and pork yearly as compared to the slower phase of growth in supply. This option, in the long run, hopes to address this issue.

Raising of Upgraded Chicken



Sasso and Kabir chickens shall be raised to supplement farmers’ income, at the same time complimenting the crop production business as a source of organic fertilizer.

Early Transplanting of Tinawon Rice



Early transplanting of rice seedlings increases the tillering capability of the rice plants and shorten their maturity period

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.

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.

Mahogany for Forest Enrichment



The integration of high timber producing species (mahogany), industrial crops (coffee) and horticultural crops like lemon, rambutan, lanzones, durian, and Pomelo is aimed at enhancing the economic returns that can be derived from the forest while reducing the pressure on the forest ecosystem.
