Laguna farmers went through organic farming training of the Department of Agriculture regional office in Calabarzon and the Laguna Office of the Provincial Agriculturist.

Forty farmers are reported in considering to venture into organic farming after they discovered the benefits of the natural-driven way of nurturing crops.

Moreover,as cited in the report from Philippine News Agency, Daniel Yee, Municipal Agricultural and Fishery Council (MAFC) chairperson of Kalayaan town in Laguna reported in considering to cultivate crops through natural farming.

“Organic farming is good because it does not use harmful pesticides and chemicals. It’s interesting that this has improved the lives of the farmers and their families and protected them from consuming toxic, unsafe foods. We thank DA for organizing this seminar,” Yee stated.

More than 40 members of the MAFC attended the said seminar at the Multi-Purpose Training Center of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist in Laguna.

“Chairpersons of the Laguna MAFCs/CAFCs; presidents and members of farmers’ groups; and provincial agriculture, health, and information offices, and human resource department representatives have undergone the seminar”, report said.

The organic farming training intensified in encouraging farmers to utilize modern agricultural technologies that are environmental friendly. This is not only beneficial for the environment but also to the health of the consumers.
