Training for Inmates in East Nusa Tenggara

Anyone can farm and anyone can learn farming including the inmates in Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara. Located in the Waikabubak Class IIB Open Prison agricultural land, also accompanied by the Technical Field Officer, Aprido Faot, the nursery of 1,000 tomato seeds was carried out. The prisoners had been preparing manure as the planting media, as well as ice plastics with a diameter of 5 cm to keep the seeds before the activity started. After the nursery is done, pesticides are also applied as a preventive mode, to ward off the pests and diseases during the nursery period. The nursery will take 18 days before it is transplanted to the raised planting beds on the prepared field. This training is carried out with the hope that they are able to become independent, particularly in providing their own daily needs.
