Knowledge Transfer activity: Halmahera Expo

Malifut, North Halmahera Regency – Tuesday, 17 September 2019 vegIMPACT NL’s team together with the Bina Tani Sejahtera Foundation – as a community empowerment based on agricultural assistance – carried out an activity in order to improve the welfare of farming families in North Halmahera Regency. Farmers in Malifut Sub-district are farmers of annual crops such as coconut to be used as copra, then also plant nutmeg, cloves and others, but for Horticultural crops farmers grow for family consumption only. In fact, the location used for Horticultural crop cultivation does not require a large land area. An area of 20×25 m2 with approximately 1000 plants can be optimized if treated with the Good Agricultural Practices to provide maximum yields. From this activity we hope that farmers can get to know Horticulture cultivation and understand the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) so that they can start planting vegetables at their respective locations and increase public awareness to consume vegetables to meet the nutritional needs of the family.
