Author: DA-AFID | 7 November 2022

The 8th Organic Agriculture Month celebration officially opened on November 7, 2022 with the theme: “Maunlad na Pagsasaka, Garantisado sa Organikong Agrikulturang Sinaliksik. 

The month-long celebration aims to promote organic agriculture by focusing national attention on the importance of organic agriculture in enhancing global competitiveness and environmental integrity, increasing food security and safety, and alleviating poverty as per the Proclamation No. 1030, series of 2015. 

As part of the government’s efforts to entice local farmers to practice organic agriculture, the Republic Act No. 10068 or the Organic Agriculture Act of 2010 was passed to establish “a comprehensive program for the promotion of community-based organic agriculture systems” and the “adoption of organic agriculture system as a viable alternative.” ### (photos by Adonis Buhayan, DA-AFID)
