Pamekasan, East Java – On December 11, 2018, we held our first regional show in December! 217 people participated in this expo, including farmers and public agricultural instructors from the Pamekasan regency.

After the opening ceremony, the event continued with a tour of the field to observe innovative farming practices and crops such as melons, pumpkins, ridge gourds, tomatoes, long beans and watermelons. The vegIMPACT NL project was introduced to the audience, especially its knowledge transfer activities at the field level. Subsequently, a representative of Panah Merah provided further information on spraying techniques and farmer’s safety while spraying. An interactive quiz was also organized to a very enthusiastic audience!┬áTo end the event, a lucky participant, selected from the attendance sheet, was given a sprayer to take good care of his crops on his farm in the future.
