Integrated agricultural production, Papua New Guinea

The project:

TerraVerde conducted a series of diverse integrated agricultural production, agro-processing and commercialization projects for a group of farms. After a thorough economic analysis, TerraVerde recommended and planned the choice of crops, cropping pattern, agro-technology application , and irrigation, as well as the machinery implementation, choice of livestock , and type and capacity of processing plants. Each project combined smallholder production units within the central farm.

 

Results:

The project will boost farm self-sufficiency in the supply of fresh high-value products to replace
more expensive imports. This initiative is expected to introduce hundreds of direct and indirect
jobs into the area.
