Contract Farming Orientation in SVIS

NIA Zamboanga Peninsula in collaboration with the Sibuguey Valley Irrigation System (SVIS) hosted an orientation session on Contract Farming at Barangay Paradise, Diplahan, Zamboanga Sibugay on March 26, 2024. Attended by various officers and members representing 13 Irrigators Associations (IAs) within SVIS, the orientation aimed to enlighten farmers on rice contract farming and its benefits.

Through this program, farmers will gain access to a guaranteed market for their produce, thereby ensuring stable income. Moreover, contract farming opens avenues for farmers with access to financial support and ancillary assistance that will aid them in their agricultural endeavors.
