Cedac report to help farmers

As the rainy season approaches, Cedac, a Cambodian agricultural organisation, is appealing to farmers this week to increase their rice yields, according to a Cedac report directed toward growers.

The report established a six-step order of operations that would ensure increased output during the most intense growing season of the year, Cedac president Yang Saing Koma said yesterday.

The report is hoped to spread a new awareness among farmers, and increase the country’s total rice output, he said, although he admitted most farmers were not yet prepared to start with the process.

Chey Siyat, a farmer in Kampot province, said the instructional report has helped her prepare for growing.

“Readiness for the farming season will enable us to take advantage of the season and get more output,” she said.
