Farmers in developing and least developed nations should not only do farming for farming or surviving, but also creating small and collective businesses to ensure a sustainable agriculture with better livelihoods!

Climate change has changed mind set of our farmers in the rural farming communities to try best efforts to use remained stuff after rice harvest.

Recently, our members’ cooperative has collected rice straw from the field to make compost and use to grow and improve vegetables and crops production included mushroom to diversify incomes in a recycling and rotating manner from rice to soil, vegetables and crops. Moreover, our members’ cooperative has ambitions to make compost from waste chicken house and resources that can find in the villages for sales to farmer members aimed to produce more organic, healthy and nutritious food.

Base on our previous experiences of not sustainable farming of farmers, especially smallholders in rural areas, therefore farmers should not only do farming for farming or surviving, but also creating small and collective businesses to ensure a sustainable agriculture with better livelihoods of the rural people as well.
