Topic: Intercropping Ideas for Papaya / Calamansi / Vegetables

Hello friends,

my name is Jochen from Germany. We started 3 years ago a 15 hectar integrated farm project in Tigaon, Camarines Sur, the hometown of my Bicolana wife.

Our target is to work out new methodes in order to increase the local value adding for small farmers. Therefore we did many experiments in intercropping, soil mixtures, combining organic and commercial fertilizers, out of season planting etc. Other important subjects are direct marketing, storage and processing.

We are always scouting for new ideas. Since we are completely private we are open for any promissing methodes. We are also very much willing to share our experience.

For your initial information have a look to our new farm video:

Looking forward to your comments, suggestions and critics.

Best regards from Hamburg, Germany where it is now minus 6 centigrade and full of snow sad , but fortunately by end of January I will be back to Bicol big_smile
