CLSU 2001-01: Developing Partnership with Local Government Units (LGUs) and Other Stakeholders to Accelerate Technology Adoption of Peri-Urban Vegetable Production

This project is a component of the program on Development of Peri-urban Vegetable Production Systems for Sustainable Year-Round Supplies to Tropical Asian Cities being implemented by the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC), Central Luzon State University (CLSU) and Technological University of Munich (TUM). It is geared to develop partnership with LGUs and other stakeholders to accelerate the adoption of peri-urban vegetable technologies. For effective delivery of agricultural extension services to the farming population, linkages with LGUs were established. Memoranda of Agreement (MOA) were signed between the CLSU AVRDC-TUM Peri-urban Vegetable Program represented by the CLSU President and the Chief Executives of the various LGUs. The commitment of both parties resulted in five training exercises attended by farmers, LGU technicians, and DA and SUC researchers. To further accelerate the delivery of technologies, the program signed an agreement with CLSU-Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) Technology Promotion Center (TPC) to validate peri-urban vegetable production technologies and secure funding from LBP. The future of technology adoption is bright as the fundamentals are in place. Some farmers have already adopted the technologies and it is only a matter of time before we witness wider acceptance of the technologies.
