Tho’s Story of Change
Ms. Tho said” I decide to call my husband to return home, because I have many works to manage such as planting more crops, looking after vegetables and animals. Now, my husband comes, so he helps me to do housework and take care of the crops, so I can go through the village to purchase vegetables.”
Good cooperation and support from PDAFF has helped to expand new crop cultivation (Orange and yellow watermelon) to access new market opportunities with better profit earning.
Vegetable is the potential crop contributing to improve the family economy of farmers there, that farmers can earn as daily income or in a short period of time. According to a July report from the Kandieng District Agriculture Office, the area under vegetable cultivation was about 63 hectares, which mostly were the leafy vegetables, since it is the traditional practice of the farmers there on the such crop for many decades. They thought that the leafy vegetables can be grown well in their area and each family just grows vegetables on a small plot.
