() - March 26, 2006 - 12:00am
The Kapisanan ng Magsasaka, Mangingisda at Manggagawa ng Pilipinas Inc. (KaMMMPi) is conducting a regular seminar on how to own five hectares or more in an upland area under a new government program that allows forest and watershed areas to be developed by individuals for livelihood to augment their incomes.

Properly managed, upland farming can provide incomes higher than those earned by middle level executives in urban areas.

The Center for Research, Planning and Strategic Studies Inc. (CRPSS), a subsidiary of KaMMMPi, offers the following topics under its agroforestation seminar series: How to lease government lands from five to 500 hectares; agroforestation; producing fruits and high value crops; fertilizing orchards and high value crops; marketing upland crops and livestock; and managing small farms as family farms.

The technology on how to develop such farms including its prospective economic returns will be discussed.

Specialists and government experts on the various topics will conduct the seminar.

Those interested may contact Jing A. Domingo at 928-87-41 local 2407 or CP 0915-691-1011. The fee is P1,500 per person with 10-percent discount for group registrants. Seminar dates will be announced as soon as there are enough participants to support the payment of speakers, venue and food.
