Harvesting time! - VegIMPACT

Harvesting time!

On the 25th of November, we harvested caisim with the Head of Sangaji Jaya Village, Kao Barat, Halmahera Utara. This demonstration plot will be used for a Regional Expo which will be held on January 29th, 2019. This is the first time farmers are planting vegetables, on fields where they normally grow rice. The result of the total harvest on 50 m2 field was 97kg. This amount has been taken by the middle man; at a price of 5,000 Rupiahs per kg, so a benefit of 485,000 Rupiahs, with investment cost of 50,000 Rupiahs, while the rest of the harvest (around 10kg) have been shared with other farmers.
