CLSU 2004-09: Participatory Approach in the Adaptation and Adoption of Grafted Tomato Technology in Central Luzon

Tomato production during hot-wet months is a risky enterprise because of the susceptibility of tomato to flooding and bacterial wilt. Due to these problems tomato production is concentrated during the dry months causing market glut and very low price from December to May. On the contrary, tomato is very expensive during hot-wet months. To overcome the problem the technology on grafted tomato was developed and tested for farmer’s adaptation and eventual adoption using participatory R and D/E. The project was implemented in three towns of Nueva Ecija and eight towns of Bulacan provinces. The technology demonstrated successful production of tomato during wet season by significantly decreasing the incidence of bacterial wilt. It was done with the use of bacterial wilt and flood resistant rootstock and high yielding tomato. The participatory nature of the project was achieved at the institutional and farmer levels. The project was institutionalized at the DA-LGU. Cost sharing in the conduct of Training of Trainers, Refresher Course, demonstration farms and Farmers Field Schools (FFS) among DA-LGUs, Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Unit (DA-RFU), CLSU, and farmer groups was done. A continuous increase in the number of farmers adopting the technology is evident which was basically motivated by the participatory nature of the project.
