At least 250 farmers from Negros Occidental were being trained on organic vegetable production.

The farmers were taking the Organic Vegetable Production Class 01-15 at the Merceditas J. Montilla Agricultural and Vocational Demo Farm in the Municipality of Moises Padilla, which started recently.

The provincial government has allocated P800,000 for the three-month training on organic vegetable production.

The farmers received planting materials and will attend series of classes and planting activities.

The program is intended to promote organic farming as well as to enhance the knowledge and skills of vegetable growers on potential and updated technology.

It is expected to boost the achievement of the provincial government’s thrust to enhance food security and agricultural productivity in the province.

 Marañon said he is happy to help the farmers and told them to work hard because such training would improve their quality of life.

He also advised the farmers to ask for God’s guidance during their training.
