Long term goals for rice farmers
MCE-A’s goal is to assist farmers to produce high quality rice at volumes that provide food security for members, as well as providing secure markets for any surplus rice.
This is being achieved by:
- Growing test plots of SRI rice and documenting the process with statistics with the aim of implementing increased SRI production in 2013 to 2014
- Advocating for guaranteed local markets and minimum price for farmers
- Providing the tools and technical training so farmers are able to cultivate all available land
- Campaigning to ensure communal land is protected for community use
