Mr Teik Kiang – Kampung Raja
Organic agricultural practices & techniques safeguard the life of organic farmers in a way that organic farming strictly prohibits the usage of chemical fertilizers, harmful pesticides, fungicides & herbicides in Certified Organic farmlands. In contrary to conventional farming, whereby spray rigs filled with health damaging pesticides are used to grow vegetation & crops.
Some farmers transition to organic farming to earn premium prices. Others switch to make their farms more sustainable. But for most of our farmers, transitioning to organic farming is a necessary way to protect their family’s health, and even save their health and lives.
