Columbio farmers visited SRI farmers of Palimbang

Local Government Unit (LGU) of Columbio and Rural Development Institute of Sultan Kudarat (RDISK) sent 27 farmers from different villages of Columbio and staff from RDISK and LGU for a 2 days field trip – exposure on System of Rice Intensification (SRI) at Palimbang last November 23-24 of this year.

The RDISK and LGU of Columbio are very much interested on this system of farming. To convince their farmers on this system, they requested PASALI to conduct an exposure visit to their farmers and give inputs on SRI. And  be able to see by their farmers themselves the actual practices on SRI.

They learned through SRI networking and Agri- pinoy training that PASALI farmers has been practicing SRI in municipality of Palimbang.

In their visit, they met the SRI farmers of Palimbang, saw the SRI rice fields and even tried the motorized weeder in which the Columbio farmers were amazed and convinced with the system. They were encouraged and planned to practice the SRI system on their farm in each respective villages.
