CSPPS WP No. 2018-09: Characterizing Farm Communities in Rainfed Lowland Areas in Pamplona, Camarines Sur

The initial activity of the CRDES 2 project was a Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) designed to know more about the community as a whole and to help farmers realize what their problems are and how they would solve them. Results of the PRA for the study sites in Camarines Sur show that the major problems in the said areas were lack of water resources, lack of farm inputs and farm machineries, and lack of modern knowledge in farming. Because of the relatively close proximity of the municipality of Pamplona to the Regional Field Office of the Department of Agriculture (DA RFO 5), action plans of the farmer participants mostly involved reaching out to the said office to seek for some assistance. The Municipal Agriculture Office of Pamplona also emerged in the action plans. Results also show that farmer participants from Camarines Sur want to know more about modern technologies in farming and achieve new knowledge by being proactive in attending more trainings and seminars.
