Tinoc farmers gains knowledge on coffee prod'n



verybody drinks coffee. So, engaging in a coffee business is an advantage for there is a wide market for it.




This is quoted from Mr. Benjamin Lunag Jr., of the Provincial Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources Office (PAENRO), the resource speaker during the Coffee Production, Pest and Diseases Control Management Seminar.


On August 8, 2013, the seminar that is purposely to impart additional knowledge to farmers on how to grow and take care coffee plants was conducted at the Multi-Purpose Building, Poblacion, Tinoc, Ifugao.


The seminar was sponsored by the Second Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management (CHARM2) Project particularly the component on Agriculture Agri-business and Income Generating Activities (AAIGA). Participants were People’s Organization (PO) members, who are coffee planters from the 12 barangays of Tinoc. Thirty-eight males and 15 females attended the training.


In a talk delivered by Mayor Marcelo G. Catalino of Tinoc, he said, “Coffee was once a source of income of my family during my younger years.” He then encouraged the participants to listen very well to the speaker and learn something from the lecture.


At the end of the training, some participants gave their impressions. All of them were thankful for the training for they learned a lot on coffee production. They are hopeful that the knowledge they gained will be helpful in uplifting their economic status. //Jamie Ann S. Donato, CMO-Tinoc, Ifugao
