Trainers training on FSS-SRI

Social Action Center (SAC)- Diocese of Malaybalay in Bukidnon visited Pasali- Palimbang through Catholic Relief Services- Davao (CRS) for training on SRI last September 27-29, 2010. They sent total of 15 representatives  10 from their organization and 5 from local government partners. The training has a theme “ Trainers Training on: Farm Support Scheme- System of Rice Intensification (FSS-SRI)- Advocating FSS-SRI for food security.”

 

The participants expected  to learn about SRI, enhance their knowledge and experience actual SRI practices. On the other hand Pasali SRI farm technicians/trainers expected that in this training they will train farmers but the participants are professionals.

On training, the farm trainers gave inputs on SRI  topics and other SRI practitioners shared their experiences on farming, that the participants appreciated very much because so many inputs on SRI they learnt. Though thay have knowledge on agriculture, most of them have no experience in farming and SRI is new to them. Thus in discussions only few participated and asked questions. But they were very enthusiastic in hands on planting and actual weeding especially the womens participants. “ it’s our first time to step in mud on ricefield” they say.

In the end of training, they were thankful to all who imparted knowledge that they could share to their farmers. They were impressed on motorized weeder, they believed that it’s really a great tool in SRI practices and hope that they could also have it for their farmers.
