So am I. Most Philippine farmers (who comprise the biggest portion of
our population) have no more than one hectare (about 2 acres) of land.
Many of them live in very poor conditions. If there are technologies,
practices, methods, tricks, etc. consistent with ecological farming
which can help them become self-sufficient in food and have some
surplus for their cash needs, this is a major advance. (I am not into
farming myself but I work with an organization of such farmers,
feeding them info, acting as some sort of urban contact and doing
various urban errands for them.)
By the way, EM (a microbial preparation that is supposed to hasten
composting) is also marketed here, and used by several recycling
centers and organic farms I know.
