CEDAC introduces guidlines

The Cambodian Centre for Study and Development in Agriculture (CEDAC) yesterday introduced techniques to prepare a good rice harvest for farmers ahead of the rainy season, CEDAC announced.

Yang Saing Koma, president of CEDAC, said farmers could improve their harvests if they follow the seven steps.  

“[They] can select any step, but they will have the best results, if they follow all steps,” he said.

Khieu Sam, a farmer in Trapaing Trach village in Leaybo commune in Tramkak district of Takeo province, who owns half a hectare of land for rice farming, said he never used CEDAC’s techniques before.  

However, he said that he prefered old techniques, because he did not have enough organic fertilizer to use on the field.

“There are a few farmers in the village who already work with CEDAC’s suggestions, because most of the farmers are not able to produce organic fertilizers,” he said.
