#OrganicAgriculture | Another Organic Agriculture Stakeholders/Farmers' Forum was conducted yesterday, April 28, 2022, at Midsayap, North Cotabato.
The said forum was initiated by the Organic Agriculture Program of the DA-12 in partnership with the Provincial Organic Agriculture who engaged with the organic practitioners from all across North Cotabato.
A locally focused quality assurance system called “Participatory Guarantee System (PGS)” was introduced. This alternative third-party certification is used to certify producers and farmers as actual and active organic agriculture practitioners which would actively involve the small farmers and fisherfolk.
Organic Hub project and the Provincial Roadmap was also presented and the farmers were given a chance to deliver their important concerns to fill out a few learning gaps and generate resolutions to expand and develop the organic agriculture industry in the province.
